Robber kicks man on casino bathroom floor, steals wallet

18 February 2009

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- Metro Police are asking for the public's help in finding a man who robbed another man of his wallet inside a casino bathroom.

The man followed the casino customer, who was over 60 years of age, into a bathroom of a casino in the 4000 block of West Flamingo Road off the Las Vegas Strip, police said. Authorities declined to identify the casino.

Once in the restroom, the man knocked the victim to the ground and continued to punch and kick the victim, police said. He then took the victim's wallet and fled out of the casino in an unknown direction.

Metro detectives recovered the man's wallet, but the cash was missing, police said. No weapon was seen during the crime, police said.

Since the victim was in his 60s, police said they will enhance the robber's charges.

The man spoke an unknown language that wasn't English, police said.

The robber was described as 5-foot-8-inches tall with a shaved head and stubble on his face. He was last seen wearing a tank jacket, dark pants and white tennis shoes.

Anyone with information about the man is asked to call the Metro Police Robbery Section at (702) 828-3591, or to remain anonymous call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
