WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police are looking for a man who robbed three hotel guests with a rifle early this morning.

Around 3:15 a.m., officers responded to the Budgetel Inn at 4903 Market St. The victims told police when they answered a knock on the door, they found a black male about approximately 5’3″ wearing a brown hoodie who had what they described as a small rifle. They said he spoke with a Jamaican accent.

The suspect stole a purse and some cash. The victims did not know which way he left.

    …be stupid enough to answer a knock on their door at 3:15 in the morning while staying in a crack/heroin ridden no-tel mo-tel without looking through the peephole first?

    This is nothing more than another drug deal gone bad. Drug users are so very stupid! The crap they do is stupid and their attempts to cover it up are even worse!

    Didn’t the Chief proudly announce that crime was down in Wilmington? Maybe he meant “down”town…and elsewhere.

    Yep, he sure did say crime was “down.” He did not say crime was non-existent. Get real man. It diminishes your argument when you show a lack of knowledge for basic statistics.

    Truth: Crime is down.
    Reality: Wilmington has a crime problem.
