Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Fargo Police are investigating an early morning armed robbery at the Scandia Hotel. It happened just after 2 A-M at 717 4th Street North.

A male suspect entered the hotel lobby and pointed a handgun at a female clerk and demanded money. She complied and he fled the hotel with and undisclosed amount of cash.

Scandia Owner Doug Halverson Says he is glad the worker did what she did so she wouldn't be hurt. He says he is in the works of installing new security equipment immediately.

DOUG HALVERSON - Scandia Owner: “Oh we will probably have locked doors with a pass or a buzzer to get in, you have to identify yourself.”

Police say they are following up on some leads from the surveillance video and photos. They are not releasing that video or photos at this time.
