BILLINGS – Billings police are investigating an armed robbery at Lucky’s Grand Casino.

The casino at 13th Street West and Grand Avenue was robbed by a man with a knife shortly after 8 a.m. Thursday morning.

Police Lt. Mark Cady said the suspect showed a knife to the casino attendant and demanded money.

After receiving an unknown amount of cash the robber ran out of the business.

Cady said the suspect’s description of a thin white male was similar to that of the man who robbed a convenience store early Thursday morning.
