LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) – A reward of up to $5,000 is being offered to help track down the suspects of a robbery and assault on an armored vehicle guard in October at the Premium Outlet Mall.
Garda Cash Logistics is offering the reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the robbery and the recovery of the stolen funds.
The guard was assaulted before noon Oct. 5 as he walked along a hallway at the mall. According to a release from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the suspects apparently were waiting for the guard and struck him with baseball bats as he walked past them.
The suspects took a bag that the guard was attempting to deliver to a retailer. As they attempted to leave, the guard began to follow the suspects. One of the bat-wielding suspects turned back to the victim at which point the guard discharged his firearm.
It is not believed that anyone was hit by the gunfire. The suspects ran and climbed into a light-colored 4-door sedan and were last seen escaping northbound on Grand Central Parkway. The sedan possibly has mismatched wheels.
The suspects are described as two white or Hispanic males believed to be in their 20s. The first suspect was last seen wearing a black hoodie, stocking cap, sunglasses and an unknown colored shirt. There is no clothing description for the second suspect.
Both suspects had stubble beards, wore construction reflector vests, and are described as being between 5-foot-8 and 5-11.
Anyone who witnessed or has information about the incident is urged to contact Metro Detective Sgt. Steve Candelas or Detective Ed Laneve at 702‐828‐3591 or, to remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555 or visit www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
Tips directly leading to an arrest or an indictment processed through Crime Stoppers may result in a cash reward.
