Metro Police today are asking for the public's help in identifying and finding a man who robbed a Las Vegas Valley casino in the eastern valley on Saturday.

The man walked into the rear of Danny's Slot Country, 4213 Boulder Highway, at about 5 a.m. and went to the cashier's counter, police said.

The man pulled a black, long-barrel handgun from his waist and told the cashier to "Give me all the money," police said.

The man left with the money through the same door he had entered, police said.

The man is described as black, in his 20s, 5-foot-11-inches tall with a medium build and last seen wearing a dark ball cap with the letter "A" on the front, police said.

He wore a gray, hooded sweatshirt-styled jacket, a white polo shirt with horizontal stripes, dark jeans and white shoes, police said.

Anyone with information about the man is being asked to call Metro's Robbery Section at (702) 828-3591, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
