COLUMBIA TOWNSHIP, OH (FOX19) -

An eastern Hamilton County hotel was robbed overnight, according to the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies responded to the Days Inn & Suites off Ridge Road near Highland Avenue about 3 a.m.

An employee was behind the hotel counter when a male suspect walked into the office and demanded the night clerk give him all the money, sheriff's officials wrote in a prepared statement.

The suspect jumped over the counter and grabbed the money from the money drawer and then got into an unknown vehicle and fled the parking lot.

A Blue Ash police officer and K-9 assisted deputies in the search for the suspect, but he fled in an unknown vehicle.

The incident, described by the sheriff's office as an aggravated robbery, remains under investigation.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the sheriff's office: 513-851-6000, or Crime Stoppers: 513-352-3040.
