New Orleans police are looking for 41-year-old Joseph James in connection with an attempted robbery Sunday inside Harrah’s Casino.
About 8:30 p.m., a man cashed out his winnings at the casino and went to the restroom, accompanied by another man. When he exited the restroom, the other man struck him and knocked him to the ground, then went through the man’s pockets but was unable to take his money.
The victim was treated for injuries to his face and head.
Detectives reviewed surveillance video of the incident and identified James as the suspect. A warrant is out for his arrest.
