Robbery suspect turns himself into Las Vegas police

A violent robbery suspect has turned himself in, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

Cameron Garcia, 27, hired a lawyer and turned himself into police after feeling pressure to do so on Oct. 23, according to authorities.

Police were on the lookout for Garica since late September after he was reportedly involved in an attack on a 75-year-old man near Windmill Lane and Paradise Road.
