One poker player was hospitalized with broken teeth and possible facial fractures in a Caesars Casino mugging and assault. Late last night in the bathroom just outside the poker room, a regular poker player was assaulted in an attempted robbery. The victim, George Chu, a 57 year old Asian American and recovering cancer patient was reportedly struck in the face 10 to 15 times and suffered broken bottom teeth, multiple cuts on the eye, heavy bruising and possible facial fractures. Chu barely escaped the bathroom and stumbled towards the poker area covered in blood screaming “help me, help me.” Three security officers from Caesars simply just stood and watched as their patron was in dire straights and the attacker attempted to get away. Witnesses claim another poker player jumped over the railing out of the poker room and attempted to stop the assailant. This unnamed poker player was also reportedly punched several times as the assailant escaped. At this point a half dozen poker players began to chase the suspect out into the street. Again, the Caesars security guards just stood and watched. The suspect, described as a 30 year old African American male, escaped. The crazy thing is that the suspect was reportedly playing poker at the 1-2 tables earlier that evening.
When the Atlantic City police arrived, one of the officers claimed, “This is not our jurisdiction.” Apparently, the State Police are in control because of the on site gaming. Well, as long as the patrons are safe right? Another Caesars security officer also claimed that they were not permitted to chase someone past the casino doors. PLEASE! What about the valet area and cab stand? The parking lot? Outside standing in front of fucking Caesar himself? I guess if there’s a murder in the self park Coliseum, we’ll have to call the Baltimore homicide squad to investigate. You mean to tell me that casino security can’t follow an attempted assault and robbery suspect out into the street and keep an eye on the person until police arrive? If that suspect had robbed the craps table for $40,000 in chips you can bet your ass that casino security would have followed the suspect on foot to Sea Isle City. There are a lot of new casinos popping up all over the place. Caesars better get their shit together.
