At approximately 10:30 p.m. a black male walked into the front lobby of the Best Western Inn, 481 Deltona Blvd. He asked the two women behind the reception counter where the bathrooms were and they told him. When then turned their backs on him to continue with their work, the robber leapt over the desk and produced a small handgun. One of the victims reported that the robber told them not to panic, just give him what he wants and everything will be okay. He made the victims open the register and he grabbed money from it. He then forced the women at gunpoint into the rear office area and ordered them to open the safe located there. The women told him that they weren’t able to unlock it. The robber searched the victim’s pockets, turning up cash and other personal items, which he took. Finally, the man jumped back over the counter and ran out of the building.

The robber was described as a black male, approximately 5’3” to 5’5” with a medium build. One victim said he had a baby face appearance and spoke with a New York or New Jersey accent. He was last seen wearing black, baggy pants; a black, nylon jacket; and a do-rag on his head.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to contact investigator Thomas Sylvester at (386) 860-7030 or Crime Stoppers of Northeast Florida toll-free at 1-888-277-TIPS. Callers to Crime Stoppers will remain anonymous and can qualify for a reward of up to $1,000.
