LAS VEGAS (KXNT/AP) — Las Vegas police say a second suspect accused of posing as a Mormon missionary and robbing a man has turned himself in.

Authorities say 25-year-old Robert Estall surrendered on Wednesday and was booked into the Clark County jail on suspicion of robbery, burglary, kidnapping and other charges.

Police say Estall and 28-year-old Abraham Austin dressed as missionaries when they knocked on the door of a home June 27 and asked to talk about religion.

The man who answered told police he talked with the two men for about five minutes before they attacked and robbed him at gunpoint.

Austin was arrested Friday in North Las Vegas.
