Police say a casino surveillance tape helped them identify a 23-year-old man who followed a Casino Queen winner home to Overland early Monday to steal several thousand dollars. The suspect was still sought Tuesday.

Investigators said they have surveillance camera pictures of him following the victim out of the casino on the East St. Louis riverfront and pictures of a car that left the parking lot behind the victim's. Witnesses to the robbery described a car with the same license number.

The victim escaped serious injury when the robber hit him with a beer bottle and grabbed the cash on his front porch about 7 a.m. Monday, Overland police said. Officers said he might have been more seriously hurt had his family not checked on the commotion, causing the robber to flee.
