Police say officers responded to a report of a robbery around 11:50 p.m. Saturday at the Aces Casino and shortly after were dispatched to the Connexions Casino.

Authorities say the suspect left the first casino before being able to obtain anything of value. The robber was able to flee the second facility with an undisclosed amount of cash before police arrived.

The suspect is described as a Native American or Hispanic male, approximately 5 foot 7 inches tall, medium build with a dark parka, dark pants and armed with a handgun.

Police say anyone with information on the robberies should contact Crimestoppers at 605-367-7007.
