According to a release from Milford police, a male dressed in a “ninja” outfit entered the Holiday Inn Express located at 301 Old Bank Road in Milford at approximately 12:08 a.m. July 6.
Surveillance video revealed the man jumping onto the hotel counter displaying a silver or gold semi-automatic pistol.
The suspect was wearing grey gloves and brown shoes at the time and was wearing a mask that resembled a “ninja.”
According to the release, the suspect demanded that the desk clerk open the drawer and then took $400 in cash from the hotel. He then fled in an unknown direction.
The victim described the male as 5’5 to 5’6 and approximately 165 pounds.
Detective Steve Rogers of the Milford Police Department said he is still working on investigating the incident.
He said it is the first time he has worked on a case where the suspect dressed like a ninja, but he said it has happened before.
“There was one earlier in Butler County,” Rogers said. “(The) same hotel franchise.”
Rogers said he does not have any “100 percent positive leads” yet but is continuing to work on the investigation.
Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Milford Police Department at (513) 248-5084 or Crime Stoppers at (513) 352-3040.
