The alleged robbery occurred on September 26 at approximately 11:00 p.m. Police say Khalil Hamilton, 26, texted the victim, who lived at the Airbnb, telling him he needed help with a bathroom repair.
When the victim went down address the issue, Hamilton took out a black handgun and made him lie on the floor. Hamilton used zip-ties to mobilize the victim and stole his wallet and watch before he left the home.
Hamilton is considered armed and dangerous and was last seen driving an older model Honda passenger car with a Texas license plate number SSF5628. He is wanted with active warrants for armed robbery, aggravated assault, false imprisonment, and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
Police believe the license plate on the Honda Accord he was driving belongs to another car, according to WSBT-TV.
The station also reported that the victim said his child and the mother were at the Airbnb at the time of the incident, but nothing was done to them, according to the police report.
