A security guard at Fashion Show mall had a gun pointed at him Tuesday night when he tried to stop a woman who’d stolen about $3,000 in merchandise.
The robbery happened at Saks Fifth Avenue within the 3200 Las Vegas Blvd. South mall, when a black woman described as “heavyset” walked out of the store with the items about 8 p.m., said Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon.
The woman made her way to a gold Mercedes in the parking garage, where the security guard had followed and confronted her. At that point, a man who was driving the Mercedes pulled out a handgun and aimed it at the guard.
“The vehicle was last seen driving through the parking garage,” Gordon said, adding it then turned onto Industrial Road in an unknown direction.
As of Tuesday night, neither suspect was in custody.
