Armed robbery reported at Billings casino

A robbery has been reported at the Mardi Gras Casino in Billings West End, on Sunday morning, at around 8:30 a.m.

The victim, who chose not to be named, said in her statement that she was behind the bar running water in a sink when she heard a man say, "Give me your money".

The victim reported that the robber pointed a large silver automatic hand gun at her after which she did as the robber instructed. She handed over all the cash she had in her apron, and then he left. She described the man was about 6 feet 2 inches tall, slim, wore all black and covered his face. The victim could not establish what race he was.

There was another woman who noticed the robber. Employed at Manny's sports bar right next door to the Mardis Gras Casino, the woman believes that the same person was waiting for Manny's to open. On seeing him act strange, she waited for him to leave.

The woman employed at Manny's also does not want to be identified. She added that the man was accompanied by a woman who was waiting on him in a silver Chevy Impala with no hubcap on the back right side of the vehicle.
