A 72-year-old man was robbed and carjacked in the parking garage of a downtown Detroit casino on Sunday morning.

The carjacking took place about 9:50 a.m. on the sixth floor of the MGM Casino parking garage on Third Street. 

The elderly man was in the parking garage elevator set to leave the casino  when he was approached by a man, believed to be in his 30s, who "forcefully knocked the victim to the ground" before riffling through his pockets for money, which he stole, police said. 

The suspect fled in a blue 2012 Honda Accord. The Accord has a Michigan plate number of DUW 9398, police said.
