Armed suspects rob Motel 6; school lockdown lifted

By
June 2, 2011 |

A South Davis elementary school shifted into lockdown mode Thursday afternoon as Davis police searched for an armed man who robbed the Motel 6 on Chiles Road.

Lt. Paul Doroshov said the two robbers — one of them armed with what appeared to be a large handgun or sawed-off shotgun — entered the motel at about 1:45 p.m. and demanded cash. They fled with an undisclosed amount of money, headed east on Chiles Road, then south on El Cemonte Avenue.

No injuries were reported.

Police alerted authorities at nearby Pioneer Elementary School on Hamel Street, ordering the campus into lockdown while officers established a perimeter and searched the area, Doroshov said.

Pioneer staff members sent an e-mail bulletin to parents shortly after 2 p.m. notifying them of the lockdown and advising them not to pick up their children “until you receive the all-clear. Your children are safe and locked in the classrooms.”

The lockdown was lifted about 45 minutes later.

The robbery suspects remains at large, Doroshov said. The armed man was described as an African-American male, 6 feet tall with an average build, with short black hair and a maroon jacket. His accomplice was a 5-foot-6-inch African-American male with a skinny build, wearing a light-blue hoodie sweatshirt and a rag around his head.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Davis Police Department at (530) 747-5400.
