Comments () A Text Size

A 20-year-old man was arrested after a robbery call early Tuesday at a hotel in the 3100 block of Bandera Street.

A man allegedly took $3,000 cash from his friend in a hotel room, according to a police report. The suspect ran outside and jumped into his car.

The victim was hit by a side-view mirror as he tried to stop the suspect, police said. He refused medical attention, although he had cuts and bruises on his hand.

The suspect was arrested at a convenience store at Teasley Lane and Interstate 35E, a police spokesman said.

“During the pat-down, officers found the money on him,” Officer Orlando Hinojosa said.

The man was charged with robbery and brought to jail.
