NOPD identifies suspect in casino bathroom attack and robbery

NEW ORLEANS -- The New Orleans Police Department has named a suspect in an attack and robbery that happened inside the bathroom of a casino.  The case is the latest one to roll on the Wheel of Justice.

Police say the attack happened at about 5:15 in the morning on December 12.  They say that a gambler at Harrah's went into a bathroom at the casino to count his winnings.  That's when, according to police, a man grabbed the gambler from behind and slammed him against a toilet then took the victim's money.

Initially police released a photo of the man who they said was responsible for the attack, but they did not know his name.  This week, officers released the name of a suspect along with another photo.

Police say 36-year-old Brandon Irvin is responsible for the attack.  They say he left the scene in a white minivan.
