HOOVER, Ala. (WIAT) — Hoover Police are searching for a suspect in a felony assault that occurred on Thursday, according to a release from the department.
The suspect walked into the Days Inn on 1800 Riverchase Drive around 12:30 p.m. and asked for a male named either “Darius” or “Tadarius” according to the release. The staff told the suspect that they do not release information on their guests, and the suspect then reportedly walked outside and loitered on the property.
