An arrest report from Las Vegas police revealed new details about the night Alonso Perez allegedly murdered a man in North Las Vegas.
Perez was with a woman on the night of the shooting. They stopped by a McDonald's at the 3000 block of North Las Vegas Boulevard so that the woman could use the bathroom.
When the woman walked out of the McDonald's, she failed to hold the door open for Mohammed Robinson. In response, Robinson called the woman an explicit name.
After a heated exchange, Perez shot Robinson.
Perez later admitted he smoked crystal meth before the incident occurred.
Officials located Perez on Sept. 2 and took him into custody. Despite being handcuffed and leg shackled inside a locked interview room, Perez escaped by breaking his handcuffs and crawling through the interview room ceiling. He stole a Ford F-250 pickup truck from Sunbelt Rentals during his escape.
He was later captured by the FBI Criminal Apprehension Team on Sept. 6 after an undercover investigation.
Police rebooked Perez for murder with a deadly weapon, felony escape, and grand larceny.
