NORTH LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) – A man has been arrested in connection with several home invasions involving victims older than 60.

Davon Xavier Lyons, 19, was booked Thursday on 23 felony charges in connection with three home invasions that occurred from Feb. 11 through March 15, according to a North Las Vegas Police Department news release.

There were five victims involved ranging from 73 to 85 years old.

The five-week investigation indicates that Lyons, operating with an accomplice, allegedly followed elderly victims into their open garage. The two suspects held the victims at gunpoint and forced them into their homes. One suspect reportedly watched the victims while the other ransacked their homes, stealing jewelry, electronics, money and other items.

In one case, the suspects cut the phone lines in the home to prevent the victims from calling 9-1-1.

Lyons was arrested in his North Las Vegas apartment where police also recovered stolen property, two stolen firearms, marijuana, and items used to package marijuana for sale.

Lyons was booked into the Clark County Detention Center.

Detectives are working to apprehend the second suspect in this investigation.

Anyone with additional information regarding this case is urged to call the North Las Vegas Police Department at (702) 633-9111 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.

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)
