96 Year Old Man Using Walker Attacked, Robbed In Casino

HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Police say they’re looking for a suspect who attacked and robbed a 96-year-old man in a casino parking garage earlier this week.

Surveillance video from Sunset Station casino shows a much younger man in a beanie circling the man who was using a walker about 4 p.m. Wednesday.

Authorities say the suspect jumped the older man from behind and robbed him on the third floor of the garage.

The man was hospitalized after the attack.

Police say they hope the public can help identify the suspect.
