Men Claim Harrah’s Atlantic City Security Guards Brutally Beat Them

Attorneys for two Philadelphia men who allege they were beaten by security guards at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City, New Jersey are calling for state and federal prosecutors to investigate the separate incidents, both of which were profiled on ABC’s 20/20 news magazine last week. 

Surveillance video shows the two men being beaten and hauled off by security. College student Sean Oaks is seen emerging from the scuffle with a gash under his one eye.  Rob Coney, an aspiring businessman and one-time basketball stand-out, is seen being struck in the head with a baton by one of the casino’s security guards.   

“There is no place for this kind of brutal, barbaric conduct by anyone -- let alone security officers in a hotel-casino -- in a civil society,” said attorney Michael Maggianoduring a Tuesday news conference. “It must be criminally investigated, over and above the civil litigation, and it must be stopped before someone is killed.”



It turns out Oaks and Coney are not the only one’s who have filed complaints against Harrah’s and its corporate parent company Caesars Entertainment. 

Harrah's said in a written statement: "Our security personnel are trained to use the least amount of force required to manage any particular incident while ensuring they are taking necessary steps to protect guests, employees and themselves."
