Motel clerk fights off would-be robbers

Early this morning, just before 1:00 a.m., two tough guys dressed in dark clothing rang the bell at the Economy Inn, summoning the clerk from the backroom. The duo feigned a request for a room, but through the locked front door, the night clerk told both the motel was full. The suspects left, but returned minutes later, this time, kicking in the locked office door. The clerk tried holding the door closed as both pushed their way in. Once both suspects made entry, they attacked the clerk, demanding money. One suspect was armed with hard knuckles and the other was armed with a long-bladed object and prominent man-bun. The clerk fought back, pushing one of the suspects out of the office, while being attacked from behind by the other. The clerk was able to gain separation from his attackers before the pair slithered off to a nearby alley.

Surveillance footage at the motel captured the attack. Attached are photos of the two tough guys. If anyone knows anything, please contact us.
