The incident happened on Jan. 16 when a man entered the hotel lobby.
Houston police say that the suspect went to the counter with a rifle and demanded that the clerk give him money from a cash drawer.
As the hotel clerk was being held at gunpoint with the rifle while the thug was demanding cash.
“I ain’t playing with you,” the man can be heard saying as he was climbing over the counter.
The clerk opened the cash drawer and simultaneously pulled out a handgun.
