HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) — Police in Henderson are asking for public help to identify a man who wore a black fedora hat and sunglasses while brandishing a handgun during a midnight robbery at a neighborhood casino.

Security video released by police shows the man demanding money at a cashier window inside My Casino about 12:35 a.m. Monday.

No one was injured, but police say the man made threats and waved the gun at an employee before making off with an undisclosed amount of cash from the business on Boulder Highway near College Drive.

The suspect was described as black, in his late 30s, about 5-foot-9 and 225 pounds.

Police say he wore a white polo shirt, dark-colored shorts, white socks and dark shoes.
