January 02, 2013 - Officers from the South County Precinct of the county Police Department responded Friday night to a report of a carjacking at the River City Casino, 777 River City Casino Blvd.
A 63-year-old female told police that an unknown suspect displayed a gun and took her purse and vehicle, a 2012 Hyundai Sonata, at roughly 10:50 p.m. from the casino's parking garage, according a Police Department news release.
The woman was not harmed. She was with a 61-year-old female, though nothing was taken from the second woman, the release stated.
