Third robbery at Loudoun hotel
A Homestead Suites Hotel in Sterling has been robbed three times in recent weeks, and authorities said the incidents are likely related.
In the most recent robbery, an armed man who had his face covered by a piece of clothing entered the hotel in the 45300 block of Catalina Court about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, went into the front office and demanded cash, according to Loudoun County Sheriff's officials.
The man fled in an unknown direction.
On June 5, a man came in the hotel lobby about 11 a.m., pulled out a gun and demanded money from a clerk. The robber's face was covered with a white bandana, and he wore a white hat and a black t-shirt.
The first incident occurred on May 19, officials said. This time the robber carried a knife. The man, whose face was covered, wore a black sweater and pants. He left on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.
In each case, the robber was described as Hispanic, officials said. In the May 19 robbery, the man was about 5 foot 8 with a thin to medium build.
Anyone with information about the man's identity is asked to contact Loudoun County Sheriff's investigator M. Bush at 703-777-0475. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can contact Loudoun Crime Solvers at 703-777-1919.
If the information leads to an arrest and indictment, the caller could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000.
