Las Vegas police are asking for help finding a man suspected of robbing a business at gunpoint Monday in the northeast valley.

About 9:40 p.m. Monday, a man entered a business on the 6000 block of East Lake Mead Boulevard, east of North Christy Lane, according to a Metropolitan Police Department release sent Tuesday night. He walked to the counter, pulled out a firearm and demanded money from the register.
