Anchorage man sought after robbery

Posted: Sunday, February 10, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A man tried to rob a Spenard hotel and then used a knife to rob an east side gas station early Friday, according to Anchorage police.

The man threatened a desk clerk at the Eagle's Nest Hotel with a screwdriver and demanded money shortly after midnight, police spokeswoman Anita Shell said. Before he received any cash, customers interrupted the robbery and he fled.

At about 12:45 a.m., the same man entered an A&W/Texaco station. He pointed a small knife at the cashier's neck and took an undisclosed amount of money, Shell said. No one was injured in either incident.

The man was described as a white, about 40 years old, 5 feet 6 inches tall, 130 pounds with reddish-blond hair and green eyes.
