WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – Police are investigating a robbery at the Best Western Park Hotel.

The robbery happened just after midnight Friday.

Two employees reported that they were robbed by two men. One of the men had a gun, according to a police report.

That robber was described as a tall white man, about 6’3″ tall and about 30 years of age. An employee said he was a “bulky” man and had a tattoo on his neck and a bruise on his face. He was wearing blue jeans and a gray hooded sweatshirt with the hood pulled over his head.
