Senior assaulted and robbed outside casino

The Calgary Police Service is seeking public assistance to identify a woman believed to be connected to the assault and robbery of a senior outside a casino.

At approximately 9 p.m., on Thursday, June 7, 2018, an 88-year-old man attended the Calgary Casino located at 1420 Meridian Road N.E. The senior left the casino and entered his vehicle, at which time he was approached by a woman who attempted to sell him what she claimed was gold jewelry.
