Metro Police look for more victims in casino guard rape case

LAS VEGAS - Authorities in Las Vegas say they're looking for more possible sexual assault victims after a 39-year-old casino security guard was arrested and charged with raping a woman in a Strip resort stairwell.

Officer Jacinto Rivera, a Las Vegas police spokesman, said Wednesday an investigation is continuing into Robert Ray Laws' activities at the New York-New York Hotel & Casino.

Laws was arrested Sept. 6 in an investigation of a woman's report that she was attacked Sept. 4.  Rivera says police think there may be other victims.

Laws is being held at the Clark County jail on $150,000 bail pending an Oct. 12 preliminary hearing of evidence on sexual assault, kidnapping and burglary charges.

A public defender involved in Laws' case didn't immediately respond Wednesday to email messages.
