Police responded to a 911 call early this morning at a local hotel in the 1900 block of St. Michael Drive. After receiving reports of aggravated robbery and sexual assault, officers captured the suspect at a nearby convenience store.

When police arrived at the hotel it was reported that the suspect, 39-year-old Myron Stewart had come to the hotel room where two guests were registered. After an argument Stewart pulled out a pistol and robbed one victim of a cell phone then forced the female victim to perform a sex act on him.

Stewart and the victim were located at a nearby convenience store on Summerhill Road. The victim told police that Stewart hid the gun beside a nearby business, and police were able to locate the firearm. The two people that were staying at the hotel had some outstanding warrants and were also arrested.

Stewart has been charged with Aggravated Robbery and Aggravated Sexual Assault.
