A man playing poker at the Jesters Mardi Gras Daiquiris in the 600 block of Bourbon Street allegedly went from player to perpetrator on Thursday.

Police said that when the man went to the cashier to cash out a ticket at around 4:20 p.m., he pulled a kitchen knife from his waistband and demanded money from the register. The cashier forked over the cash and the man fled with a bag full of it.
