The robbery happened Tuesday afternoon in the poker room. Police said the robber demanded cash from a cashier.
The suspect was able to get away, and no one was injured.
Actor James Woods said he was in the poker room when the robbery took place. In a tweet, he said he was about 30 feet away from the cashier cage at the time of the incident.
.@Bellagio staff were fantastic. They surrendered the money quietly, so no customers would get hurt. Nobody even realized it was happening. Excellent staff, cool under pressure.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) November 29, 2017
The @Bellagio security made a point of not engaging him after the actual robbery to guarantee the safety of their customers.— James Woods (@RealJamesWoods) November 29, 2017
