A male suspect has been arrested by police after a case of two elderly casino players were kidnapped from a parking area in downtown Detroit and then were robbed.
This Monday, state police said that on the wee hours of September 23, Friday, the victims were leaving Greektown Casino when the suspect appeared, pointing a gun at them, ordered them to get into the car and drive around. The suspect escaped after getting their money.
Surveillance footage taken in the casino premises showed a man talking with the two victims on several occasions as they gambled.
The suspect was identified later on as a parole absconder and was arrested last Thursday, September 29. He was then turned over to the Michigan Department of Corrections.
The case is still under investigation.
