Police are looking for the man who beat and raped a female casino worker inside an employee restroom.
Reno investigators say they were called out early Friday morning after a report that a woman in her twenties was robbed, beaten and raped. A fellow employee found her in the restroom, on the 4th floor of the main tower. Investigators could not confirm whether there are security cameras on that floor. They say they're still looking into it.
The suspect is described as a black man in his twenties, with a light complexion. He's about five ten with a thin build, and has cornrows pulled back into a pony tail. If you have any information, you are urged to call Reno Police or secret witness.
Harrah’s would not speak to News Channel 8 on camera, but a spokeswoman released the following statement:
"Our deepest sympathies go out to the victim and her family. We remain in contact with the victim and have offered counseling to her and all interested staff. The safety of our employees and our guests is a paramount concern and a high priority. We are fully cooperating with RPD and will do everything necessary to further the investigation."
