Las Vegas Hilton sports book robbed

Updated Friday, Sept. 26, 2008 | 4:49 p.m.

Two men robbed the Las Vegas Hilton's Race and Sports Superbook this morning, Metro Police said.

No one was injured and an undisclosed amount of money was taken, police said. The robbery occurred at 6:14 a.m.

The suspects wore dark clothing "from head to toe," said Lt. Clint Nichols, of Metro's robbery section. Both were armed with handguns.

Nichols said a third suspect may have driven a getaway vehicle, adding that the robbery happened fast.

"This is not your normal street robbery," Nichols said.

The suspects are still at large. Robbery detectives are reviewing videotapes from the sports book, Nichols said.

Metro's robbery section urged anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
