A Marriott Residence Inn clerk was injured while trying to wrestle a firearm out of the hands of a robbery suspect at roughly 1 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 25, according to a news release.

Sarasota Police are seeking a hispanic suspect with a slim build who was wearing a black long-sleeved shirt, black shorts and black shoes for the robbery, which occured on the 1000 block of University Parkway.
