Neighbor beaten after taking robbers to Las Vegas drug deal

Updated July 31, 2018 - 8:09 am

Las Vegas police are investigating a woman’s attack on a neighbor who allegedly brought a pair of robbers to her apartment.

The neighbor took two men to a woman’s apartment at Escondido Manor, 4386 Escondido St., near Harmon Avenue and Maryland Parkway, on Monday to buy an unknown amount of marijuana, according to Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon.

Once at the apartment, one of the men drew a handgun and forced the woman and her neighbor to lay on the floor, Gordon said. The robbers pistol-whipped the woman and stole her cellphone, cash and marijuana before fleeing.

After the robbery, the woman confronted her neighbor and beat him with “some sort of stick, pipe, or rod,” Gordon said. He was hospitalized with a cut to the leg.

The investigation is ongoing, Gordon said. The robbers were still on the loose, and it’s unclear if the woman or her neighbor will face charges.
