Police: Security Photo Shows Suspects in Motel Robbery

Detectives seek information on pair who held up Nyack Motor Lodge in West Nyack

today are distributing a photo to other police agencies of the two people suspected in Tuesday's armed robbery at the West Nyack Motor Lodge.

The two-person team held up the motel at 110 N. Route 303, West Nyack, taking cash and then fleeing toward the nearby Palisades Center mall.

The incident took place about 2:10 a.m., with the motel clerk telling police that one of the men in the attack held a black, semi-automatic pistol on him while the second man went behind the motel's front desk to take cash.

The attackers were described as:

  • A black male, in his late teens or early 20s, about 5-foot-10, wearing a hooded sweatshirt, dark jeans and carrying the black handgun.
  • A black male, in his late teens or early 20s, about 6-foot-2, wearing a hooded sweatshirt and dark jeans.

Police ask that anyone who has information related to the robbery or recognizes the people shown in the security camera image contact the Clarkstown Police Detective Bureau at 845-639-5840.

It's a real shame that these hooded sweatshirts are getting such a bad reputation. I myself know of some people who know someone who owns a hooded sweatshirt. We should learn to get to know the hooded sweatshirt before jumping to conclusions. Don't judge a hooded sweatshirt by it's fabric. Not all hooded sweatshirts are bad.
