I do feel for this guy and i hope they catch this man quickly and he goes to jail for a long time. I hate any form of violence and this man must have been terrified and i hope he gets over his ordeal quickly,

If he was playing roulette too. then there is no doubt there, that they have him on the surveillance tape. In bathrooms there is no video, but outside, cameras are all over the place. Probably it will be a matter of time for his arrest.

Thats verry bad, at first he won a nice cash prize and than the money was gone. I hope the Manager of the casino didn´t do that But outside from the restroom they have cameras? I think he can see which guy had stolen the money.

Detroit, like many places in the U.S., was hit hard by the recession. The Motor City Casino is located south of Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, infamous for its homeless population, abandoned buildings, drug trade, etc. Detroit's good old days are over.

yeah he was in a casino spent some time at the tables with the victim, so no problem figuring out who he is, and because you have to register when entering casino it is kinda stupid thing to do a crime under such circumstances. probably he was out of drugs money.

These casinos should to give bank ticket with the names of the winners on them. In this way they would not be robbed directly in the casino or near the casino. Security cameras can help a lot in this case. Thiefs need in jail many years because is a robbery with violence
