LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) — A preliminary hearing is set today for a man accused of attempting to kill a local Metro police sergeant.
Omar Brisbane, 34, was indicted Thursday and remains at the Clark County Detention Center.
Police say last month he robbed, beat and tried to sexually assault another man, then and took off on foot with the victim's wallet.
Metro says hours later, Brisbane tried to steal a sergeant’s gun and punched her repeatedly on her face and head.
According to officers, Brisbane later told them he was going to kill cops and said if the sergeant had been a male officer, she would be dead.
