Sioux Falls police investigating casino robbery; holdup is second in the city this week


SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — Sioux Falls police are investigating the armed robbery of another casino.

Authorities say a man entered the Rice Street Casino shortly after 6 p.m. Monday and demanded money from an employee who noticed a handgun in the man's pocket.

The clerk gave an undetermined amount of cash to the robber, who was wearing a hooded sweat shirt and had a bandanna covering his face. The suspect fled on foot.

It was the second casino robbery in the city in as many days. The Rockin Robin's Casino was held up Sunday evening.
