Police Seek Victims of Sexual Assault Suspect

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police is requesting help in finding any other victims of a young man they say committed a series of sex crimes.

Police arrested Lajuan Cole, 19 of Las Vegas on charges of robbery and five counts of open and gross lewdness, following an attack on August 30.

According to police, Cole approached a woman, who was walking with her daughter to a bus stop near Spencer Street and Pebble Road, and asked for directions.

He then grabbed her breasts and pressed his body against her, police said. The victim and suspect fell to the ground and struggled. The victim tried to hold the suspect, but he was able to get away.

During the investigation into this incident, police developed Cole as a suspect in additional crimes that happened in the days before the August 30 attack in the area of Eastern Avenue and Silverado Ranch Boulevard.

Cole has been released on bail.

Anyone with information is asked to call Metro's Sexual Assault Section at (702) 828-3421, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
