Las Vegas police arrested two armed robbery and carjacking suspects in downtown Las Vegas early Tuesday.

Lt. David Gordon said a man was sitting in his car at 1:19 a.m. on the 200 block of Las Vegas Boulevard North when two men pulled up in a black vehicle. Both were armed.

“The suspects took the victim’s cell phone, cash and vehicle, then fled northbound,” Gordon said.

A short time later, an officer observed the stolen vehicle and stopped it on the 200 block of Las Vegas Boulevard North. The men attempted to flee on foot, but both were eventually arrested, Gordon said.

Their names were not immediately released.
