For the second time in three weeks, a hotel on University Drive has been robbed at gunpoint.
Authorities say a black male wearing a clown mask entered the Homewood Suites hotel just after 3:30am Friday morning. He pulled a handgun and demanded all the money in the cash register. Before leaving, the suspect forced the clerk into the back room.
Back on July 4th, another masked man made a similar robbery of the Hawthorn Suites just down the street. College Station police are looking into a possible connection.
