Kansas City man says attackers stole casino winnings

Posted: Updated:

A Kansas City man who won nearly $2,000 at an area casino was beaten and robbed of his winnings after leaving the facility with a woman he just met.

The Kansas City Star reports the man told police he left with the woman early Sunday "with the intention to be romantic." But when they arrived at their destination around 3 a.m., two men attacked him.

Police say one of the assailants hit the man in the head with a gun before they took his money and fled with the woman, who had set the victim up.

The victim was treated at a hospital with a gash on the head. A detailed description of the suspects was not available.
