Bellevue, Washington: Casino Employee Robbed by Gang of Five Armed Thugs

A Bellevue Casino Employee Falls Victim to Armed Robbery
Bellevue, Washington – A casino employee from Bellevue, Washington, became the victim of an armed robbery earlier this week. The Bellevue Police Department released details about the incident on Tuesday, February 6, 2024.

The armed robbery took place at the Sunset Village apartment complex on the 12800 block of SE 40th Place in Bellevue. The victim, who worked at a casino in Skyway, was attacked by five armed individuals upon returning home to Bellevue.

Law enforcement responded to a call about the armed robbery at approximately 4:43 AM. They discovered that the armed suspects forced their way into the casino employee’s home. Some of the suspects held the victim at gunpoint while others stole personal belongings.

The Bellevue Police Department suspects that the casino employee was followed home from their workplace, and they revealed that there has been a pattern of similar robberies in the region in the past.

At this time, it is unclear whether the victim was harmed during the armed robbery. The investigation into the case is ongoing.

In a separate incident, two suspects were arrested for their alleged involvement in an armed robbery at an illegal gambling venue in Queens, New York. The FBI made the arrests following an investigation into an incident from July that resulted in one person being injured by gunshots.

Casinos and casino visitors are often targets for robberies, given the large sums of cash involved. This can make them attractive to criminals who are willing to engage in violent crimes such as armed robberies. Both casino employees and patrons can fall victim to these unlawful activities. It is important for law enforcement and casino security to remain vigilant in order to prevent and respond to such incidents in the future.
