A 29-year-old man, staying at a local motel, was allegedly robbed Thursday after an unidentified male and a female accomplice approached him with a weapon and demanded his wallet.
According to reports from the Sampson County Sheriff’s Office, the man was standing outside of his room at the Gracie Motel, located just outside of Clinton on Southeast Boulevard, Thursday morning when a couple approached him with a handgun and demanded his money.
The 29-year-old victim handed over his wallet with an undisclosed amount of cash inside, along with an ID card.
After taking the wallet, the two suspects got into a blue Chevrolet two-door pickup truck. They were last seen headed north on U.S. Hwy. 701.
