Officer injured while apprehending armed robbery suspect

Posted: Updated:

An Atlantic City police officer was injured this morning while taking an armed robbery suspect into custody.

Authorities say following an armed robbery inside a bathroom at Resorts casino, the suspect was located a short distance away at the Burgundy Motel.  Upon responding to the property, a struggle ensued, in which Sgt. Richard Halvorson and the suspect crashed through a plate glass window.  The arrest was made, and Halvorson was taken to the hospital to be checked out for a cut to his right hand.  Officials say the gun seen during the robbery has not yet been located.

Authorities say the DGE will handle the armed robbery investigation because it appears the incident happened just off the casino floor.

No suspect information has been provided yet.
