NORTH LAS VEGAS -- Detectives are seeking public assistance locating a man believed to be involved in two North Las Vegas robberies and an attempt kidnapping.
Officers responded after 9 p.m. July 8 to the AM/PM at Cheyenne Road and Civic Center Drive in reference to a robbery. A 37-year-old woman reported that she was pumping gas when a black male approached her. He pointed a gun at her, demanded she get in her car and threatened to shoot her if she didn’t comply. The victim ran away, and the suspect fled in her vehicle.
While fleeing westbound on Cheyenne, 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.
Detectives have identified the suspect as Javonn Caver, 18, of North Las Vegas. He is described as a black male, 5-foot 3, 105 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. He frequents the area of Cheyenne and Civic Center Drive. Caver should be considered armed and dangerous.
Anyone with information on Caver’s whereabouts should call the North Las Vegas Police Department at (702) 633-9111 or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555. Tips leading to an arrest or an indictment called into Crime Stoppers may result in a cash reward.
