LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Two pedestrians were injured on the Las Vegas Strip Monday night when a firework was thrown from a car near Harrah’s Las Vegas, according to Metro police.

Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a suspect in the case. The suspect vehicle is a white Ford Mustang with blue or purple racing stripes and a “Ford” graphic across the windshield.

The incident happened just after 7 p.m.

The suspect vehicle was on the Strip when the firework was thrown from the vehicle. Two victims who were standing on the sidewalk sustained burns. Their injuries were not life-threatening.

A video of a separate incident that night shows the same vehicle near the Strip and East Harmon Avenue throwing a firework at an orange Corvette. That victim did not report the incident to police.
