91-year-old carjacked in Greektown Casino parking lot

- Detroit police have arrested a suspect after a 91-year-old was carjacked in the Greektown Casino parking lot. 

Not only did the suspect steal the man's red '95 Cadillac -- but then drove it to work the next morning. 

The victim had just finished playing poker Friday night and was walking back to his car just after 9 p.m. when he heard those words. 

"Give me everything you've got."

The victim tells us the stranger came up to him and put his arm around his throat, with enough pressure that he was having trouble breathing. At first, the victim thought maybe it was his poker buddies playing a trick. 

"So I hollered out, 'Get off of my back!'" he says, with a small laugh. But then he realized it wasn't a joke.

Police say a 24-year-old man forced the 91-year-old to the ground and took the keys to his '95 red Cadillac El Dorado. The guy then took off in his car. 

Police say the suspect was caught in Taylor the next day. 

"He was just a young kid. Now, what's he looking at? Jail time," the victim says. 

The victim says he loves poker so much so he's not letting this scare him off.
