Las Vegas police are asking for the public's help to locate several suspects involved in multiple home invasions during the month of January.

The first home invasion was reported in the area of Desert Inn Road and Theme Road. The second incident was in the area of Vegas Valley Drive and Cabana Drive.

The investigations initiated by detectives indicate that at least three suspects approached the victim residences and forcibly gained entry. In one of the incidents the suspects knocked on the door before making entry. At least one of the suspects was armed with a handgun, which he used to pistol whip a victim in each incident, causing one of the victims to suffer a brain bleed.

The suspects ransacked the residences and fled in the victims’ vehicles.

The suspects can only be described as black male adults, 18 to 30 years old, standing 5'8" to 6’1” tall.

One of the victim vehicles, a red 2007 Honda Fit sedan with Nevada physically handicap license plate PH83138, is still outstanding and has not been located as of this release. Should anyone have any information on the location of the vehicle, DO NOT approach it, and contact police immediately.


Anyone with any information about these cases is urged to contact the LVMPD Southeast Area Command Patrol Investigations Section by phone at 702-828-3206. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 702-385-5555, on the internet at www.crimestoppersofnv.com, or text CRIMESNV plus tip information to 274637 (CRIMES).
