NORTH LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) – North Las Vegas police say they have arrested a man suspected in a pair of robberies and an attempted kidnapping.
Javonn Caver, 18, of North Las Vegas was taken into custody this afternoon. Police say that on July 8 he approached a woman at a gas station at Cheyenne Road and Civic Center Drive, pointed a gun at her and demanded she enter the car. She ran away, and he fled in the vehicle.
While fleeing westbound on Cheyenne, police say the man crashed into two other vehicles on the I-15 overpass, disabling the stolen vehicle. Witnesses reported the suspect exited the vehicle and stood in oncoming traffic trying to stop another car.
He stopped a Toyota Sedan driven by an 18-year-old Las Vegas resident and ordered her out of her vehicle at gunpoint. The woman got out and ran. The suspect fled the scene in the victim’s vehicle, which was recovered days later.
