Police say a robber stalked a man who won $12,000 at the SugarHouse Casino to his home in South Philadelphia.


A man was robbed at gunpoint of $13,000 in casino winnings early Saturday morning in Philadelphia, police said. 

The 43-year-old man told police he played blackjack at the Sugar House Casino on North Delaware Avenue between 11 p.m. Friday and 4:30 a.m. Saturday. He then cashed out after he was up approximately $13,000.

The man then took a taxi to a home on South Mildred Street. As soon as he arrived and walked towards the home, an armed man dressed in all black with a mask covering the lower half of his face approached him, police said. The gunman pressed a semi-automatic handgun to the left side of the victim’s head and told him to get on the ground, according to investigators.
