After the rush of the Super Bowl game concluded late Sunday night, security at the South Point hotel-casino detained a person who was believed to have robbed the property's sports book.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, the incident happened at 9:19 p.m. when a person presented a firearm at the sports book.

The person was given an unknown amount of cash before leaving, police said. Hotel security officers were able to detain the person in the valet area.
