In July and August, 2015 a series of violent home invasions occurred in the Southwest portion of the Las Vegas valley.
In each of these events, victims were home during early evening hours when two to three armed suspects kicked in doors, pistol whipped and tied up the occupants, ransacked the house, and in at least one event, committed a sexual assault.
The assailants also took property from the residences.
A combined investigation between the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's Central Robbery Section, Sexual Assault Section and the Major Violators Section resulted in the identification of three individuals believed to be involved in these crimes.
On September 2, 2015 as a result of the investigation, detectives arrested 42-year old Wilbert Knight, 28-year old Brandon Black, and 23-year old Quincy Williams in connection with these events.
On December 16, 2015 indictments were handed down for a multitude of felony charges for each of the three suspects. 
Anyone with any information about these crimes is urged to contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 702-385-5555.
