KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Police are investigating after a man said he was robbed of $6,000 he had just won at Harrah’s North Kansas City Casino. Chuck Stanway told FOX 4 he spent a few hours at the casino on Thursday, then headed to his home on North Drury Avenue. That’s where he said he was robbed by two men.

“I didn’t even get two feet outside my garage, that’s when they were there,” he told FOX 4.

Stanway said he thinks the two men might have followed him home from the casino. He said they both had guns and demanded he hand over his wallet. Police believe the suspects ran north away from the house, but they don’t have anybody in custody or a description of the men.

“When you have a gun staring down at you, you would never imagine that,” Stanway said. “It’s the worst feeling in the world.”

Stanway said the two men had on gloves and masks, so he couldn’t see what they looked like. He said it was 5:30 p.m. when he got home and it robbery happened in broad daylight.

Staff at Harrah’s want to remind people they can get their winnings in the form of a check or deposit them inside at an ATM before leaving the building.
