SIOUX FALLS (AP) - Authorities in Sioux Falls say they have arrested a man wanted for robbing a casino at knifepoint last week.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens says 44-year-old Chad Riedel of Colton is facing several charges, including first-degree robbery and possession of a stolen vehicle.

Riedel allegedly walked into Fireside Casino on South Carolyn Avenue on Feb. 6 and demanded cash. Police say he handcuffed the clerk to a pipe in the casino, took the cash and her car.

Clemens says the owner of the casino watched surveillance video and recognized Riedel as a regular customer.

Riedel was arrested Thursday. Bond has been set at $25,000.
