Augusta robbery investigation continues

AUGUSTA — Police have disclosed new details as they continue to investigate Monday’s robbery at a Western Avenue motel.

Augusta Police Detective Lt. Keith Brann said detectives continue to work with surveillance video to assist their investigation into the robbery, which occurred at the Super 8 Motel on Western Avenue around 1:20 a.m. Monday.

Brann said two people went to the motel desk and demanded money. Police are unsure if the robbers are men or women.

Brann did not say whether the suspects were given money or a weapon was involved.

The robbery, Brann said, is not connected to Dec. 12 robbery at the same motel.

In that incident, two guests called police at about 1:30 a.m., 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. 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.
