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.
