WAUKEGAN, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Police responded to an armed robbery at a hotel in north suburban Waukegan Wednesday.

About 10:30 p.m., officers responded to the Red Roof Inn, 3031 Belvidere Rd., after two males entered the hotel and forced an employee to open the cash register, according to a statement from the Waukegan Police Department.

Both suspects were wearing masks and one of them was wielding a gun, police said. It was not immediately known how much cash was taken from the register, police said. The suspects then entered a vehicle and drove away from the scene.

Both were black males, police said. One was 5-foot-8 while the other was 6-foot-2, police added. The taller male was said to be carrying the gun.

Anyone with information can call the CID Tip Line at (847) 360-9001. Callers can remain anonymous.
