WAUKEGAN, Ill. (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

Police responded to an armed robbery at a hotel in north suburban Waukegan Wednesday.

About 10:30 p.m., officers responded to the Red Roof Inn, 3031 Belvidere Rd., after two males entered the hotel and forced an employee to open the cash register, according to a statement from the Waukegan Police Department.

Both suspects were wearing masks and one of them was wielding a gun, police said. It was not immediately known how much cash was taken from the register, police said. The suspects then entered a vehicle and drove away from the scene.

Both were black males, police said. One was 5-foot-8 while the other was 6-foot-2, police added. The taller male was said to be carrying the gun.

Anyone with information can call the CID Tip Line at (847) 360-9001. Callers can remain anonymous.

    It's been months since the last snowflake fell, but Chicago residents are still hitting potholes that make your teeth chatter. Which is why one Southside resident was puzzled when construction crews began repaving a road that virtually no one uses.
