The victim said Johnson left the hotel while she was talking with Lewis. He came back a few moments later, pointed a handgun at her, and asked where money is kept, according to an incident report.
The victim told him there was no money, but he walked around the counter and allegedly took cash from a drawer, the report states.
Police said they viewed security camera footage from the incident and spoke with a witness who said he saw a red Jeep Liberty parked at a nearby hotel. He identified Lewis as the driver of the Jeep after police showed him a photo from the surveillance footage, authorities said.
