Charleston police are looking for a man accused of robbing a local gambling parlor.
It happened Monday night at Max's Place on MacCorkle Avenue on the eastern end of Kanawha City.
Detective W. Daniels said a suspect described only as a 6-foot white male weighing about 200 pounds walked in just after 7 p.m. He sat down at one of the gambling machines and called an employee over to show him how to play, Daniels said.
The detective said the suspect then told her "to be nice" because he was going to rob her. The suspect grabbed the cash register and slammed it onto the ground, smashing it open. He fled with the cash.
Daniels said no weapon was used.
Police planned to review surveillance video Tuesday.
