MOSES LAKE - Four people are in jail after reportedly robbing a man outside a Moses Lake hotel Wednesday night.
Moses Lake police responded about 7:30 p.m. to the SureStay Plus hotel on Kittleson Road after the victim reported he was robbed in the parking lot.
Police say the four suspects, some of which the victim knew, had contacted the man outside the hotel where a female suspect reportedly assaulted him with brass knuckles, according to Moses Lake police.
Another suspect was allegedly armed with a knife during the robbery, where the victim had about $40 in cash and speakers stolen from his car. The four suspects fled before police arrived.
About 12:20 a.m. Thursday, officers located the suspects’ vehicle at the Imperial Inn on West Broadway Avenue. Robert Patterson, 31, Darren Bunney, 54, Menika Clemens, 30, and Tessa Harvill, 25, were arrested and booked into Grant County Jail for first-degree robbery.
Moses Lake police say a knife was recovered.
Patterson was arrested just 10 days ago after reportedly admitting to breaking into a storage unit facility on West Prichard Road where he is accused of breaking into a trailer and stealing a motorcycle. Moses Lake police arrested him later in the day, still in possession of the motorcycle.
Two days later, Patterson left a voicemail with iFIBER ONE News, asking to take the post about his Aug. 12 arrest off of Facebook. “I ask if you please can take it off. I’ve already learned my lesson. I don’t need my (expletive) plastered all over Facebook for something stupid I’ve done,” Patterson said.
