LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A local man is facing an attempted murder charge for allegedly driving over his girlfriend after she went to the Electric Daisy Carnival without his consent earlier this month.
Ryan Mansour, 20, told police that he left work overnight on May 21 and went to speak to his girlfriend after he found pictures of her at the festival on Instagram.
According to the police report, Mansour headed to her northwest valley home to get the items he had given her through the years as she did not deserve them anymore.
The woman returned Mansour's bears and letters once he arrived at the home but also stomped on flowers which he had gotten a day earlier after he threw them out of his car window, as recorded in the report.
The 20-year-old then told police that a verbal argument took place with the situation escalating in a nearby parking lot, located in the 6700 block of West Alexander Road, when the two traveled to the lot to continue to talk.
Mansour said the two continued the quarrel before he lost sight of her while attempting to leave the lot in his car until he heard a woman yelling to stop the vehicle.
The police report then states two bystanders tried to free the woman trapped underneath the car as her face was near the exhaust and getting burned.
She was eventually freed from the vehicle and transported to the hospital by medical personnel in critical condition.
Police said Mansour's statements of how it initially happened were inconsistent while later admitting he was full of rage and made a dumb mistake due to his state of mind but did not run her over on purpose.
The victim suffered a broken leg, broken arm, broken pelvis, a lacerated liver, and a collapsed lung. She also told police the two were in a bad argument but was unsure if he had intentionally driven over her.
Tuesday, Mansour was held at the Clark County Detention Center on $25,000 bail with an upcoming court date on Wednesday.
