Madison Police say a robber stole a man's ticket at the Ho-Chuck Gaming facility, and returned to the casino later to cash it in.

The robbery happened around 8:39 Wednesday morning at the casino on Evan Acres Rd.

The robber came up behind a Jefferson man and put him in a bear hug. He was able to push the “cash out” button at the machine the victim was sitting at, and steal the ticket. There was a struggle but the robber ran from the building.

The robber later returned, wearing different clothing, and cashed the ticket in at a self-serve kiosk. He left again with the cash.

He was last seen driving away in a black car.

Police describe the robber as: Male, black, mustache, some other facial hair, medium complexion, medium build, wearing a black hoodie with a white t-shirt underneath, black baggy pants, and bright blue sneakers. Later he changed into a red letterman's style jacket and a red and white hat.
