Tourists Robbed on Southside

For the second time in as many nights, tourists have been robbed at a Southside motel. Chatham County police tell us an elderly couple staying at the Comfort Inn at Highway 204 and I-95 were bound with tape and held at gunpoint after they opened their door to a man who asked to use their phone about 8:30pm last night. The suspect took money and some of their belongings.

Fortunately they weren't hurt, but the couple was shaken up. The suspect is described as a white male, six feet tall weighing about 175 pounds, with medium-length gray and black hair.

Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 234-2020.
