Council Bluffs police are investigating an armed robbery that occurred Sunday morning in a parking garage at Horseshoe Casino, according to a news release from the department.
Just after 9:30 a.m., officers responded to the venue, 2701 23rd Ave., in reference to the incident. Upon arrival, officers spoke with the alleged victim, a 73-year-old Carson man, who reported that he was exiting his vehicle when a man approached him and drew a semi-automatic handgun and demanded he hand over his wallet, the release says.
