A man wielding a crowbar robbed a downtown motel overnight.

San Antonio police were investigating the robbery at the Rodeway Inn, located in the 900 block of Main Avenue.

The robbery happened just before midnight Tuesday night.

Investigators said a Hispanic man, believed to be in his mid-20s and wearing a grey hoodie and black pants, walked into the front office and demanded money from the clerk.

Apparently the clerk got scared when he displayed a crowbar in a threatening manner.

The robber got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and was seen running behind a restaurant to ditch his clothes. He apparently took off in a different outfit.

The clerk was not injured.
