Chattanooga police are trying to track down four men they say robbed a Comfort Suites on Williams Street at gunpoint in August.

Police spokesman Officer Nathan Hartwig said an unidentified man entered the hotel at 2431 Williams St. around 8:30 p.m. on Aug. 24, and started chatting with the clerk.

The man then jumped over the counter, pulled out a handgun, and held it to the clerk’s back while demanding money.

After the clerk relented, the man fled the scene, Hartwig said.

Police have described the suspect as a black male between 25 and 35 years old, about 6 feet 3 inches tall with a skinny build.

He had a short afro, was clean shaven, and was wearing a black polo shirt with some sort of design on the front and long black shorts. Hartwig said the man also had tattoos on his neck.

Police said that three other men seen in the area may also be involved and they have released photos of the suspects.

To contact police with any information related to the robbery, call the Chattanooga Police Department at 423-698-2525 or the Chattanooga Area Crime Stoppers at 423-698-3333.

Robbing to pay for $250 tennis shoes, rapper garb and jewelry ... Oops. Left out drugs. As the world turns. Is ANYTHING ever going to change? Where is the outrage from Rev. Al? Sad, sad heritage.
