    This surveillance photo shows a man thought to be a suspect in Tuesday morning’s robbery of a clerk at a Microtel Inn in north Charlotte.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police are looking for a man who they say robbed a University City hotel at gunpoint early Tuesday.

The robbery was reported about 1:45 a.m. at the Microtel Inn, in the 100 block of East McCullough Drive.

The clerk told police that a man entered the hotel, pointed a gun at him and demanded money. The man took money and ran off, police say.

The clerk was not injured.

The suspect is described as a black male about 25 years old, 6 feet tall with average build and shoulder-length dreadlocks, wearing black pants and a blue hooded jacket.

Anyone with information in the case is asked to call Crime Stoppers, 704-334-1600.
