The employees complied with the suspect's demands and handed him an undetermined amount of money.

Actor James Woods was gambling in the poker room at the Bellagio in Las Vegas when the poker room was robbed on Tuesday.

Police said the robber entered through the valet area of the Bellagio.

Officers say a white male robbed the Bellagio's poker cage with a handgun.
