Las Vegas police investigate armed robbery at Bellagio

Police are on the hunt for an armed robber who was wearing glasses and a bad wig during a holdup inside the Bellagio hotel-casino in Las Vegas.

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

Actor James Wood was inside the casino at the time of the robbery and witnessed the incident, The New York Post said.

After receiving the money, the robber left through the north valet, where he had a silver Chevrolet Cruz parked and waiting.

"About 10 minutes later, he tweeted again: ".@Bellagio staff were fantastic.

The attack against Hollstein bore similar characteristics to a knife assault on Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker in 2015. He said his wife had warned him about possible attacks due to his policies but he was determined to continue his work.

He then fled from that area in a Chevy Cruze with Nevada plates on Flamingo Road. Nobody even realized it was happening.

And while officers were soon on the scene, the suspect had already gotten away. Pelletier said that there was video of the crime and that police were confident the robber would be caught.

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 vehicle, and more, that the suspect will be apprehended. "Excellent staff, cool under pressure", Woods tweeted.

The Bellagio was the site of one of the most famous fictional heists in movie history, as seen in the 2001 film "Ocean's Eleven."
