Las Vegas police are still searching for a man who robbed the Bellagio poker room cashier cage at gunpoint Tuesday afternoon.

At 3:47 p.m. a man entered the Bellagio hotel-casino, walked up to the poker cage and demanded money.

Officers say a white male robbed the Bellagio's poker cage with a handgun.

The suspect then fled in a silver Chevrolet Cruze he parked at the valet area. No one was injured and the suspect fled the premises.

"We are working with Metro as they investigate this incident", MGM Resorts International, which owns the Bellagio, said on Twitter.

The manager refused to end the current spa session and instead she "invited me in to talk about my services", Ingram claimed. The chain and its franchises have largely ignored or mishandled the complaints, according to claims against the company.

Also on the scene was actor James Woods who happened to be inside the Bellagio during the robbery and offered on-the-scene tweets at the time.

"@Bellagio staff were fantastic".

However, the Las Vegas Sun reported that a person may have been brought inside the casino, against their will. "Excellent staff, cool under pressure", he added.

"We're very comfortable that we'll get some good leads and apprehend the individual", Metro Capt. John Pelletier said, citing video and photo evidence.

As mentioned, Capt. Pelletier said that he is confident that investigators have enough clues when combining security video, eye witness accounts, the information about the auto, and more, that the suspect will be apprehended.
