A transient man has been taken into custody after stabbing a security guard on the casino floor at the Las Vegas Strip Palazzo Casino. 

The assailant was described only as a homeless man who frequents the area.  Police arrested him after he fled the scene.

The security guard was taken to University Medical Center where he remained in critical condition.

“He’s going to survive this incident,” officer Larry Hadfield, a Metro spokesman, said. “Our prayers go out to his family and friends.”

Several slot machines and a roulette table were roped off with crime tape throughout much of Wednesday morning into the afternoon hours.

The weapon had not yet been recovered as of Wednesday evening.

The Palazzo stabbing is just the recent incident of violence to happen on Las Vegas Boulevard. Just this past Monday, police say a man fired a gunshot towards a group of people near the Bellagio. No one was hurt.

A naked gunman was also apprehended in another part of Las Vegas Monday.
