A 31 year old male used an on-line prostitution site to arrange for a date, agreeing to meet at the Travelers Inn. Upon arrival, he entered a room and was met by two females. Immediately, a male armed with a shotgun entered the room and the three robbed the victim of his car keys, phone, and wallet. The victim was able to escape the room and the male suspect took off in the victims car. The Victim flagged down a passing motorist and they began to follow the victims stolen car to Chestnut, where they saw the suspect unload some of the victims property and walk towards a house. Officers arrived on scene and set up a perimeter around the property, which consists of a front home along with 3 detached smaller residences. Not knowing which home the armed suspect may have entered, officer began hailing for everyone to come out. While some residents exited soon thereafter, others were delaying and/or refusing to comply. Eventually, officers determined they had everyone out of all 4 homes and made entry to clear them.. The original suspect was not located and it appears he had jumped the rear fence onto Maple Dr. before a perimeter was set. A witness stated he had discarded a sweatshirt on the property which was later recovered. A 44 year old male who resided in one of the rear homes was arrested on an unrelated felony warrant. The suspect in the original robbery was described as a Hispanic Male late 20's-30's, over 6'tall with a bald head.
