Fayetteville police detectives need the public's help in identifying a suspect wanted in connection with a robbery at the Fayetteville Inn & Suites on Bordeaux Park Drive.
The robbery took place on Aug. 18. An investigation revealed that an unknown black male entered the business and approached the counter as if he was a customer.
Once the clerk stood up, the suspect jumped over the counter and demanded money. The suspect then began to physically assault the clerk.
The suspect is described as a black male, around 5 feet 8 inches tall to 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighing about 180 to 200 pounds.
Anyone who recognizes the suspect seen in the surveillance photos is asked to call the Fayetteville Police Department at 910-433-1856 or CrimeStoppers at 910-483-8477.
Family members say the man who fired the shots was not the same Andrew Jay Michaelis they knew.
