A man was arraigned in Killen on Friday after he was accused of an armed robbery that took place at the Holiday Inn, 300 E. Central Texas Expressway, in Killeen on Tuesday.
Around 10:51 p.m. Tuesday, officers went to the hotel in response to an aggravated robbery call and they talked to the clerk that was robbed.
The clerk said two men came into the lobby of the hotel with guns and one of the men wearing a red hooded sweatshirt stayed by the door with a handgun while the other man wearing a black hooded sweatshirt put a gun in the clerk’s back and demanded money, according to the arrest affidavit.
The clerk also said one of the men took money from the cash register as well as the clerk’s backpack.
The men escaped on foot after the robbery and police began looking for the two men, according to the arrest affidavit.
Officers learned that the men were in a black Nissan Altima and when police tried to stop the vehicle, the vehicle fled at a high rate of speed.
During the pursuit, the Altima wrecked and flipped. Officers were able to pull the two men out of the vehicle and identify the man in the red hooded sweatshirt as Nicholis Trammell. Trammell was advised of his rights and he chose to waive them, police said.
Trammell is currently in the Bell County Jail with bond set at $100,000.
