The unidentified gambler had a regular day at the casino go horribly wrong
After enduring months of restrictions and reduced social interaction, being able to visit a casino now is a sign for many that things are returning to normal. However, one man’s recent outing to a local casino took an unexpected turn. According to police reports, the unidentified man was abducted from the Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut by two individuals who are still on the run.
Subsequently, after driving for about 15 miles, the victim was allegedly beaten and robbed by two men. “Once at [an unidentified] … business, the two suspects removed the victim from the vehicle, where he was assaulted and had items stolen from him,” Connecticut state police said in a post. The crime was committed on Monday of last week, and, even though the suspects were identified days later, it is said that as of Saturday, the suspects had still not been apprehended.
So far, it has not been reported what items were taken from the victim, nor what injuries were sustained once the whole incident happened. This type of incident is becoming more and more prevalent in casinos, and law enforcement agencies have been working hard to put an end to this trend. They often have help from the thieves themselves, who seem to be oblivious to the fact that cameras are now everywhere. In this particular case, surveillance footage caught excellent shots of the two criminals, complete with distinctive clothing. One of the dynamic duo seems to be busy on a cell phone, which could help narrow the list of possible suspects.
