LAS VEGAS (KSNV News3LV) —
Officers are looking for two suspects in a home invasion robbery of an elderly woman near Sahara and Rancho.
On May 18 around 1:18 a.m., officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department were dispatched to a home in the area of West Sahara Avenue and Paseo Del Prado to investigate a report of a robbery.
Arriving officers found an elderly female victim who said she was the victim of a home invasion robbery.
In an investigation by the Spring Valley Area Command Patrol Investigations Section, the victim was asleep in her bedroom when two men, armed with what appeared to be handguns and with their faces partially concealed, forced their way into the home.
The suspects tied the victim up and ransacked the home for an hour looking for items of value.
The suspects stole several items of personal property, along with the victim's vehicle.
After the suspects left, the victim was able to free herself and contact a neighbor for help.
After the robbery, detectives learned that the victim's bank card was used at ATMs across the valley.
Surveillance video captured two individuals arriving at the victim's residence, as well as locations where the card was used.
The vehicle seen in the videos is believed to be a car the suspects arrived at the victim's home in and drove to locations where her card was used and is described as a newer model silver four-door sedan.
One suspect is described as an Asian man between 5-foot-6 and 5-foot-8, with short hair and tattoos on his legs.
The other suspect seen on surveillance using the victim's card is described as an Asian man around 6 feet tall.
The victim's stolen vehicle is a silver 2006 Mercedes ML500 SUV with Nevada license plate LV3F95. As of this time, the vehicle still has not been located.
