The Dover Police Department is investigating a robbery that occurred at the Red Roof Inn on December 24th. At approximately 11:12 a.m., an unknown black female suspect approached the check-in counter and requested a deposit be returned for her room. The employee told the suspect that they could not give her the deposit because her name was not on the room registration. The woman then jumped the counter, assaulted the employee, and stole cash before fleeing. The suspect fled in a silver/gray Chevrolet Malibu with Delaware Temporary registration. The suspect was wearing a pink jumpsuit and had braided hair. The employee was not seriously injured.
