LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police have arrested and charged a second person in connection with a robbery where the two suspects were dressed as Mormon missionaries.

According to police, the second suspect 25-year-old Robert Estall turned himself in Wednesday. He is charged with several crimes, including burglary with a gun, battery to commit robbery and first-degree kidnapping.

The first suspect, 28-year-old Abraham Austin, was arrested last week.

Austin and Estall knocked on the door of a home near Buffalo Drive and Flamingo Road in June under the pretense of talking to the homeowner about religion, police said.

The homeowner told them it was too early and turned his back on the two men. That is when police say they hit the homeowner over the head with a gun and forced him to take them to a safe inside the house.

During the investigation, police determined both Austin and Estall were former members of the military who had duties at Nellis Air Force Base.
