By Sadef Ali Kully

JAMAICA—Police were still looking for a suspect who attacked a security guard and then stole his car July 25 in a parking lot neighboring Resorts World Casino at 110-00 Rockaway Blvd. in Ozone Park, the NYPD said.

Around 7 p.m., a bald, black man, approximately 6 feet tall, approached the 66-year-old male security guard and began physically assaulting him, police said.

During the attack, the victim dropped the keys to his 2008 Lexus, police said.

Police said the suspect took the keys and allegedly stole the Lexus. Emergency medical service responded and took the victim to the hospital, where he was treated for a broken nose and a broken eye socket, police said.

A Resorts World Casino spokesman said the attack took place in the New York Racing Association parking lot for Aqueduct Racetrack, which is next door to the casino. He pointed out that the guard was an employee of NYRA, not Resorts World Casino.

New York Racing Association did not respond to Timesledger requests for further information on the incident.
