DENVER (AP) — Attorneys for six gay couples seeking to overturn Colorado's same-sex marriage ban will make their case before a federal judge in Denver Tuesday, hoping to add to the favorable court rulings nationwide that have given momentum to their cause.
Daytona Beach Police Chief Michael Chitwood, who last week said he did not take issue with the father's initial response to the alleged assault, on Tuesday said police were "bewildered" when they saw the picture of the 11-year-old boy, shown sleeping, online.

Raymond Frolander was arrested on Friday after the father called 911 to report he had interrupted a sexual assault on his son.

By Daniel Kelley AVON-BY-THE-SEA N.J. (Reuters) - A manhunt was underway on Tuesday for masked bandits who reportedly stole roughly $181,000 in an armed robbery at Caesar's Atlantic City casino in New Jersey, police said. Authorities were tight-lipped about the robbery, but the Press of Atlantic City reported that two men, one of whom displayed a gun, stole two cash boxes at around 6 a.m. on Monday before fleeing in a car. The robbery was being investigated by the New Jersey State Police Casino Gaming Bureau, an indication, the newspaper said, that the thieves struck a gaming area of the casino. In 2012, two men walked into the same casino, pepper-sprayed a blackjack dealer, and grabbed 23 chips worth $5,000 each.
