A clerk at the Days Inn was robbed at gunpoint early Monday morning.
According to the Wauwatosa police report:
The nightshift clerk was watching television in the office when a man walked into the hotel, 11811 W. Bluemound Road, and asked for a room. The clerk checked the computer for vacancies; when he looked up he saw a gun pointed at him.
The robber told him, "Give me all your money, or I'm going to shoot you in 10 seconds."
The clerk handed over money while the robber counted backward from 10. The robber fled at 2:39 a.m.
The robber is described as a black man between 25 and 28 years old. He was about 5-foot-six inches tall and 165 pounds. He was wearing a tan, hooded sweatshirt with a light-weight black or blue jacket over it.
