ROCK HILL, S.C. (WBTV) - A man is wanted in connection with an armed robbery that occurred at a hotel in Rock Hill Wednesday morning.

According to Rock Hill police, the incident happened at the Courtyard Marriott on River Run Court. Police say employees were checking in a guest when a man reportedly came in to rob the hotel. That's when the robber allegedly pointed a gun at one of the employees and demanded cash, officers say.

Police say the robber then demanded that a second register be opened.

When employees could not open the second register, the man reportedly pointed the gun at a guest and demanded his iPhone before running from the hotel, officers said.
