Dexter police are hunting for a suspect in an alleged armed robbery Thursday.

According to the Dexter Police Department, a contract worker from Arkansas staying at the Hickory House Inn on North Outer Road reported that a man from outside of one of the rooms pointed a gun at the victim a little before 8 p.m. and took a cellphone and keys.

The suspect then reportedly fled the scene around the back of the hotel. Police found no trace of the suspect and are assuming he had a car behind the hotel.

No shots were fired during the incident and no one was injured.

Anyone with any information regarding the incident is asked to contact the Dexter Police Department at 624-5512.
