Metro Police on Thursday released video of a "person of interest" in the robbery of the Las Vegas Hilton's Race and Sports Superbook early Friday morning.

Police had earlier released photographs of two suspects and a possible getaway car in the racebook robbery.

Witnesses described the suspects as 5-foot-6 to 5-foot-7 weighing 140 to 160 pounds. Both were wearing dark clothing and black motorcycle helmets, police said.

One suspect was wearing white shoes and has a helmet with a distinct angled stripe from the front to the back.

The robbers were armed and stole an undisclosed amount of money and casino chips, police said. They fled in a silver Dodge Durango, which had been stolen.

Police said the suspects left the Hilton and drove to a nearby spot where they entered a dark-colored four-door hatchback vehicle, possibly a Toyota Matrix.

Both vehicles were driven by an unknown third person.

Their actions were recorded on a video surveillance system, police said. By releasing the video, police hope the public can help identify them.

Anyone with information regarding the robbery is asked to call Metro's robbery section at 828-3591. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.

A $25,0000 reward has been offered by the Las Vegas Hilton and may be available to the person providing information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects.
