Police probe robbery at Summerlin convenience store

Las Vegas police were investigating a report of a robbery at a Summerlin convenience store early Friday.

Police were called to the 7-Eleven in the 1200 block of North Town Center Drive at 4:34 a.m.

“Officers responded to a robbery call at a convenience store,” said Lt. Miguel Ibarra. “The initial details were that employee(s) were in a fight with the suspect.”

Officers were observed at the scene with two people detained. An investigation is continuing, Ibarra said, but noted that a preliminary investigation led to police later re-categorizing the case as a larceny. There were no reports of injuries.
