Las Vegas Metropolitan Police are on the hunt for a brazen suspect who robbed the poker room cash cage at the Bellagio Hotel and Casino Tuesday afternoon.

Las Vegas police Capt. John Pelletier said the male suspect entered the Bellagio armed with a small black handgun and demanded money. The employees complied with the suspect’s demands, and he escaped with an “unknown amount of money.”

The suspect was wearing a blonde wig, glasses and had his face partially masked, police said.

“No one was injured and the suspect fled the premises,” the Bellagio said in a statement. “We are working with Metro as they investigate this incident.”
