Las Vegas police are asking for help locating a man suspected of an armed robbery Sunday morning at a business in the central valley.
The man entered a business about 2:50 a.m. Sunday on the 5000 block of South Eastern Avenue, just south of East Tropicana Avenue, and demanded money from an employee, the Metropolitan Police Department said in a release Wednesday.
