Posted at 2:33 PM, Feb 06, 2016

Las Vegas police are seeking several suspects behind multiple home invasions in one valley neighborhood this past month.


The home invasions took place near Desert Inn and Theme roads and Vegas Valley and Cabana drives.

Police said the suspects forced their way into homes and even pistol whipped one of the victims. The suspects then ransacked the homes before taking off in the victims' vehicles.

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 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.

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