According to Paducah police, an employee of the Baymount Inn on Cairo Road called police just after 6 a.m. He said a man came into the hotel and demanded money. He said the man was wearing a gray sweatshirt, blue jeans, women's sunglasses and brass knuckles.

The employee said he refused and picked up the phone to call police.

Police arrived at the hotel and set up a perimeter.

One officer said he saw a man matching the description of the robber run into a garage behind a house near the hotel. He said the man crawled under a vehicle the ran away again.

Officers chased the man through a field and caught him in a ditch near Olivet Church Road.

Underneath the man, identified as Miller, officers say they found brass knuckles.

According to police, they found women's sunglasses under the car in the garage where Miller had allegedly tried to hide.
