Warrant issued for Sioux Falls man in connection with four January robberies

The robberies took place at three casinos and one gas station over the course of five days in late January.


SIOUX FALLS — A warrant has been issued for a suspect the Sioux Falls Police Department believes is responsible for four separate robberies across the city in late-January, two of which involved a weapon.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens announced Wednesday, Feb. 1, that authorities are seeking 31-year-old Domach Kong Khai, of Sioux Falls, in connection with three casino robberies and one gas station robbery.

Authorities say that on Jan. 20, Khai entered a Get-n-Go gas station in the 2200 block of East 10th Street, where he displayed a knife, got cash and left. Later that same day, and across town, Khai is accused of entering the Paradise Casino in the 5100 block of West 12th Street, obtaining cash and leaving. No weapon was displayed in that robbery.

Throughout the week, police believe Khai also robbed the Neon Casino in the 4100 block of East 10th Street on Jan. 22 and the Boxcar Casino in the 1400 block of East 10th Street on Jan. 25.

“Surveillance video was a big part in this, being able to identify him, with the physical description and the clothing he was wearing,” Clemens said, adding his belief that a vehicle description was also beneficial.


Two days after the final robbery, on Jan. 27, a $100,000 cash bond warrant was issued for Khai on four counts of robbery and two counts of aggravated assault.

Clemens said that neither the Sioux Falls Police Department nor the Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office’s Fugitive Task Force have been able to find Khai. Anyone with information should call police at 605-367-7212.
