Detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying two suspects from a robbery that occurred in North Las Vegas earlier this month.

On Sunday, Feb. 10 at about 2:00 P.M., NLVPD officers responded to a business in the 1600 block of North Main Street, in reference to a report of a robbery.

The preliminary investigation indicates one white male and one Hispanic male, who are thought to be between the ages of 18-20, entered the store, walked over to the drink cooler, and asked a few questions about the inventory, before walking over to the counter with the beverage of their choice. 

The Hispanic male then produced a small can of pepper spray and began to spray the cashier.  

The Hispanic male went behind the counter and repeatedly struck the victim in the head, while the white male took several cartons of cigarettes.

The first suspect is described as a young Hispanic male adult, 5-feet-8-inches-tall, and 150 pounds with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black baseball hat, grey sweater, and grey pants.

The second suspect is described as a young white male adult, 5-feet-8-inches-tall, and 150 pounds with a thin build. He was last seen wearing a black and purple baseball hat, grey shirt, striped gloves, and grey pants. 

Anyone with information on 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.
