Hattiesburg police are asking for the public’s help in solving three hotel robberies in the Hub City.

On Sunday, a suspect entered 6603 U.S. Highway 49, the Sleep Inn & Suites, inquiring about a room. The suspect left and returned within minutes displaying a handgun and demanding money, according to a release from HPD.

On Monday, that same suspect entered 2 Churchill Street, Super 8, displaying a handgun and demanded money from the clerk, according to Hattiesburg police.

On Tuesday, just after 5 a.m., that same suspect forced entry into the dining area door of 6541 U.S. Highway 49, Howard Johnson hotel. According to Hattiesburg police, the suspect pointed a handgun at the clerk and took cash from the desk drawer.
