MILFORD - Milford police today are investigating a robbery and an attempted robbery at two hotels that may have been committed by the same person.

They say the first incident happened Saturday night at the Red Roof Inn on Rowe Avenue when a man went inside with a knife and took money from the register.

Then around 10 p.m. yesterday, police say a man with a knife tried to rob the Milford Lodge on Old Gate Lane, but could not climb over the counter.

Police say the description of the suspects is similar.
