2 arrested in connection with Las Vegas Valley robberies

Las Vegas police arrested two men Monday night in connection with two armed robberies in the west valley.

The robberies were reported at 7:58 p.m. and 8:13 p.m. at two locations about 3 miles apart on West Charleston Boulevard, according to Metropolitan Police Lt. David Gordon.

In both robberies, men were approached by a man with a handgun who demanded their money and property, Gordon said. The man then fled the scene in a red or maroon van.

Patrol officers spotted the vehicle near Sahara Avenue and Rainbow Boulevard, Gordon said, and two men in their 20s were taken into custody after a vehicle chase that ended near Red Hills and Fort Apache roads.
