A 23-year-old Columbia man was arrested Tuesday and charged with trying to rob a man in a motel parking lot.

Thomas Clinton Jones is in the Lexington County Detention Center on armed robbery charges, the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department reported.

Jones is accused of holding a gun to a 49-year-old man as he was walking from the front desk to the parking lot of a Motel 6 on Burning Tree Drive, the report said.

The attempted robbery was stopped by a security guard at the hotel, and the suspect fled, police said. Jones was arrested later at another motel, where he was calling a cab for a ride home, police said.
