The suspect was wearing a dark long-sleeved shirt, jeans, white shoes and a white shirt around his face along with a University of Alabama "sock hat" on his head, police said.

The surveillance footage from the hotel captured the man brandishing a gun and having the clerk throw money onto the hotel's front desk.

Before she takes out the money, the robber is seen trying to channel some of that University of Alabama athleticism and climb over and behind the desk.

But the clerk has none of that and pushes him back over to the other side.

She then throws the money out onto the desk, and the suspect places his gun down on the countertop to put the money into a plastic bag.

That's when the clerk grabs the handgun and points it at the robber, who quickly scrambles out the front door of the hotel.

But he soon comes back inside and tries to get over the desk in an apparent attempt to get the gun from the clerk. But she again stands her ground and points the gun at him, causing him to turn and run back outside.
