Early on Friday, December 6, 2019, Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies were dispatched to a casino on Highway 397 in Lake Charles in reference to an armed robbery.

The preliminary investigation revealed three suspects entered the casino, one was armed with a handgun. Once inside two of the suspects physically assaulted the security guard and disarmed him while the third suspect robbed the cashier at gun point.

An undisclosed amount of cash along with the security guard’s firearm were taken and the suspects fled the scene.

If anyone has any information regarding this robbery, please call the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office or Crimestoppers.

The security guard was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries.
