HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Henderson police are trying to identify a person who forced a casino employee to the floor, took money from the business and fled.
Authorities say the robbery happened at the Wildfire Casino on Anthem Village Drive about 2:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 4.
Police say the suspect approached the female employee outside the building and threatened her with a handgun. Officials say the two entered the casino and the worker was forced to lie on the ground while the suspect stole money.
He fled, and nobody was injured.
The suspect is described as a 40-year-old black male, about 5 feet 6 inches tall and 160 pounds, with facial hair. He was caught on surveillance footage wearing khaki shorts, a brown, striped polo shirt, white shoes and a tan fisherman's cap.
