LAS VEGAS (KSNV – A man who is a suspect in a homicide in March was indicted by a Clark County grand jury on several counts of armed robbery over a four-month span in Chinatown.

Quincy Taylor, 25, faces seven counts of robbery with use of a deadly weapon, one count of robbery with use of a deadly weapon of a victim 60 or older, one count of attempted robbery with use of a deadly weapon, and one count of robbery with use of a deadly weapon of a victim 60 or older.

Prosecutors say Taylor held a gun to many of the victims’ heads and demanded money. Masks were used in several instances, including one involving a skeleton-type covering.

He has been called the Chinatown bandit.

Police say he waits in parking lots for victims then holds a gun to victims' heads. Police say he did this while wearing either a ski mask, or a "skull" mask that was part of a hoodie. Often he took off on a bike, according to the police report.

The robbery spree allegedly started last December and went through march at different places in the chinatown area.

While in court, prosecutors were very adamant that bail be set high, citing the "violent nature of the incident" judge nancy baker heard their plea and set bond at half a million dollars.

Last march, in another case, taylor was arrested for allegedly killing a man in a stabbing. He's currently in jail.

Judge Nancy Baker set bail at $500,000. Taylor’s next hearing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. July 24.

Taylor also is scheduled for court Thursday. He is a suspect in the stabbing death of Jeffrey Colicci on March 19 in the 3600 block of South Arville Street.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
