Las Vegas police are seeking a man suspected in a robbery last month at a restaurant.

Around 2:50 a.m. Jan. 11, officers responded to a restaurant located in the 3300 block of South Durango Drive, near Desert Inn Road, to investigate reports of a robbery which occurred to several victims inside a business.

The investigation determined the suspect entered the business with a hooded sweatshirt covering his head and part of his face. The suspect approached three female victims holding a semi-automatic handgun and demanded money and property before fleeing the business on foot.

He was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with a white tank top underneath, long black shorts with a blue stripe, and blue sneakers. The suspect also had the letters “LA” tattooed on his right hand.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
