Brazen Robbery at Saanich HotelMay 3, 2019
At about 0400 (am) hours on May 2, 2019, a robbery occurred at the Howard Johnson Hotel and Suites on Elk Lake Drive. Two masked male suspects entered the hotel and quickly jumped over the front counter to the staff area where the lone employee was working.
The males forcefully restrained the employee resulting in him suffering injuries from the event. A substantial amount of currency was taken and the employee was left restrained while the suspects departed. An alert hotel guest heard the calls for help and assisted the employee at that point.
