Two suspects who robbed two men in the parking lot of Lincoln, Rhode Island-based Twin River Casino around a couple of weeks ago are finally behind the bars, facing decades in prison and hefty fines. Both robbery suspects are from Massachusetts, and both are in their 20s. Nicholas Rudolph is 26-year-old and he is a resident of Attleboro. He was arrested and charged with two counts -- first-degree robbery and first-degree conspiracy. He has been held without bond since he appeared in Providence District Court earlier this week.
The second suspect, identified as 24-year-old Anthony Mirabile, is a resident of Plainville. He was arrested by local police last Thursday. He appeared before a judge in Wrentham District Court earlier this week. However, he has yet to appear in court in R.I., where he allegedly took part in the robbery.
Rudolph and Mirabile allegedly approached the two victims in the parking lot of the Twin River Casino. One of the suspects had a firearm tucked in his waistband. During the holdup, he brandished the firearm and allegedly pointed it at the head of one of the victims. The suspects asked the victims to turn over whatever they had with them at the time. After committing the robbery, the suspects fled in a car. The incident took place at around 2:25 am.
The two victims, luckily, escaped any kind of injury. After the suspects fled away, they walked into the casino building, and notified security officers. Later, local police investigated the robbery and arrested the victims.
Earlier this month, a Connecticut man identified as 27-year-old Isaiah Snell was sentenced to four years in prison for knocking down and robbing a 62-year-old player at Twin River casino in 2019. Snell allegedly started following the victim after seeing him counting a significant amount of cash inside the gaming property. He followed the victim to the casino’s parking lot, where he assaulted him, snatched more than $1,500 from him, and fled away.
Last year, a 69-year-old casino player was assaulted and robbed by a suspect identified as 30-year-old Anthony McClain. The suspect allegedly snatched a significant amount of money, cell phone, and a pair of glasses from the elderly casino player.
