Security Guard Critically Shot in Ambush at Hustler Casino

A security guard has been critically shot and another injured in an ambush at Hustler Casino. Multiple assailants made off with an undisclosed amount of money in the armed raid, according to a police report.

Two Security Guards Injured During Ambush at Hustler Casino

The incident took place on August 4 where the suspects were lying in wait for the security van to appear and opened fire upon its arrival.

Lt. Christopher Cuff of the Gardena Police Department led a press conference explaining that a 911 call came in at around 10am reporting gun shots fired near the location of the popular Hustler Casino in Los Angeles.

“Essentially what happened was, as the armoured security officers got out of the car, the suspects who were waiting in the parking lot immediately began to fire on the security guards. The security guards returned fire.”

Robbers Heavily Armed

The criminal gang were heavily armed with at least one high-powered rifle and handguns for the rest of the crew.

One security guard was shot in the leg putting him in a critical condition but his life is not thought to be in danger any longer. The other guard suffered multiple cuts and lacerations.

Alvin Spencer, a patron of the casino, told KTLA new outlet:

“A truck was getting ready to come in and next thing I know they start pulling out guns. That’s all I was doing, running, because they let off shots, so I had to get the hell out of there. That’s what I did.”

 

As of now, no arrests have been made, but more surprisingly, the police are yet to release any descriptions of the suspects.

Bad Times for Hustler Casino

They say that there’s no such thing as bad publicity but Hustler Casino might be ready to argue against that pearl of wisdom.

The last few days have seen a barrage of abuse aimed at the casino for cancelling a $250,000 guarantee after player numbers were far fewer than expected following a bigger card room running a major event on the same day.

This made a mockery of the concept of a tournament guarantee which is often the reason many players will travel great distances to play in some events.

The news of a serious armed robbery in the vicinity of the casino now threatens to harm the confidence of Hustler’s regular customers.
