A female blackjack worker has allegedly been stabbed by her colleague at a luxury resort on the Las Vegas Strip.
Officials say the victim, who has not yet been named, was taken to hospital for treatment to deep facial cuts suffered in the attack at the Bellagio hotel and casino complex.
A woman in her 50s has been charged with battery with a deadly weapon and causing mayhem with substantial bodily harm, local television channel KSNV-TV reported .
It quoted a spokesman for MGM Resorts International, which owns the Bellagio, who said there was an altercation in one of the blackjack pits that resulted in one of the women being struck in the face with a sharp object.
A spokesman for Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department was unable to confirm whether the two women were working at the time.
The incident comes a week after a man shot dead his ex-girlfriend in the lobby of the nearby Excalibur resort, also run by MGM, before killing himself.
The Bellagio, which has nearly 4,000 guest rooms and suites, has featured in several films, including Ocean's Eleven and The Hangover.
