Police are asking for the public’s help in locating the man involved in a string of cellphone business robberies in northeast Las Vegas.
The first robbery occurred about 10:40 a.m. Sept. 19 and the most recent was about 6 p.m. Thursday, according to Las Vegas police.
The man police are looking for entered wireless telephone businesses pretending to be a customer and then pulled out a handgun and demanded money. Once he took the money, he fled on foot.
One of the robberies was at 3:45 p.m. Sept. 26, at 348 N. Nellis Blvd. Police couldn’t confirm the name of the business that was robbed, but the shopping center at that address hosts several businesses, including a MetroPCS.
Police are describing the male robber as 20 to 30 years old, between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighing 220 and 260 pounds. He has brown eyes, a mustache and a “Mexican eagle tattoo” on his left arm, police said.
The man was last seen wearing a blue cap, silver-framed sunglasses, a white, short-sleeve polo shirt, blue jeans and white shoes.
