A witness at the 170 North State St. lodge told authorities an older white male had taken an unspecified amount of cash at knife point and then fled in a newer model station wagon, according to a press release. The police arrived at the lodge about 7 a.m.
A man at the lodge declined Sunday to comment on the incident, which the police said was still under investigation.
