Police looking for 'Telephone Man' robber

Metro Police are looking for a man who robbed several businesses on the northeast side of the Las Vegas valley.

The first robbery happened at around 10:40 a.m. Sept. 19 and the latest happened at around 6 p.m. Oct. 9.

Police have called him the Telephone Man robber because he targets wireless phone businesses. He enters the store, pretends to be a customer, pulls out a handgun and demands money. Once he gets the money, the suspect leaves the area on foot.

He is described as a Hispanic man between 20 and 30 years old. He is between 5 foot 8 and 5 foot 11 and between 220 and 260 pounds. He has black hair, a mustache, brown eyes and a Mexican eagle tattoo on his left arm.

He was last seen wearing a blue cap, silver-framed sunglasses, a white short-sleeved polo shirt, blue jeans and white shoes.

Anyone with information is urged to call Metro’s Robbery Section at (702) 828-3591, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
