Masked Men Rob Carribbean Casino Boat

Gary Gelman was outside the Majesty - a gambling ship docked on Nautical Mile in Freeport - when four gun-wielding men in ski masks ran by him about 7:30 p.m. last night.

Gelman, the owner of the Majestic Casino Cruise boat, yelled for them to stop, thinking they were late customers, he said, when one pointed a shotgun at his back and ordered him onto the ship.

"I was walking, telling him to stop, don't do this," Gelman said late last night. "He was telling me that he was going to shoot me because I was walking very slow."

The four men boarded the boat and robbed it of more than a $100,000, Gelman said.

As Nassau police investigated the robbery last night, Gelman's voice was still shaky as he spoke in a phone interview.

He said that while one man held a gun to his back - taking a $6,000 watch off his wrist - three others forced about 100 customers to lie on the floor while they robbed a teller of the boat's cash on hand.
