AUGUSTA — Police returned to a Western Avenue motel early Monday for the second robbery in a week.

Augusta Police Lt. Keith Brann confirmed that a robbery occurred at the Super 8 Motel at about 12:17 a.m. Nobody was injured, and police continue to search for the culprits, Brann said.

Police on Monday withheld additional information about the robbery.

It was the second robbery at the motel in a week. Two guests called police at about 1:30 a.m. Dec. 12 after a man reportedly entered a room and struck another man on the head with a handgun. The robber fled on foot with an undisclosed amount of money, Shaw said.

The victim suffered minor injuries. A woman in the room with him was not injured.

The robber was described as a white man, wearing a hooded sweatshirt with red lettering.

Police did not say if the victim of Monday’s robbery was a guest of the business.

A radio bulletin told police throughout the area to be on the lookout for two men. One of the men was described as around 5 feet, 10 inches tall and about 140 pounds. He was possibly a teenager, according to the bulletin.

The second man was described as about 6 feet tall and 180 pounds.

Both suspects wore cloth over their face, according to the bulletin.
