Delco Hotel Clerk Tied Up, Robbed at Gunpoint

Police are on the hunt for a man who tied up and robbed a Delaware County hotel clerk Monday afternoon.

Officials say the suspect entered the lobby of a Tinicum Township Quality Inn shortly before 1:30 p.m. carrying a backpack and a bucket containing painter tools.

He asked the clerk about reserving a room, saying his vehicle had broken down, according to investigators. When the clerk turned her back, the suspect allegedly jumped over the counter and pulled out a gun.

The suspect then tied the clerk's hands behind her back and robbed her of a small amount of cash before fleeing the scene.

The suspect is described as a medium-built man standing 6-feet.

Anyone with any information regarding the incident is asked to contact the Tinicum Township Police Department at 610-521-3830.
