Man Arrested For Kidnapping, Robbing 2 Elderly Greektown Casino Patrons

DETROIT (AP) — A man has been arrested after two elderly casino patrons were kidnapped from a parking structure in downtown Detroit and robbed.

State police say Monday that the victims were leaving Greektown Casino early Sept. 23 when they were ordered into their vehicle and told to drive around. The man fled after taking their money at gunpoint.

Surveillance video inside the casino recorded a man speaking with the two people on numerous occasions as they gambled. Video also captured images of a vehicle the man rode in to the casino.

He was later identified as a parole absconder and arrested Thursday. He was turned over to the Michigan Department of Corrections.

The case remains under investigation.
