LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police have arrested a suspect in three attempted bank robberies.

Police say Kenyatta Stepps tried to rob different banks within about a half-hour Saturday morning but apparently got money at only one.

The string of holdups began about 10:30 a.m. at the Bank of America on West Sahara. He fled with no money in a silver Nissan and showed up 15 minutes later at the Wells Fargo bank on South Rainbow, where he did obtain an undisclosed amount of cash.

The third heist was reported at the US Bank on South Rainbow about 11 a.m.

Lt. Michael Wallace says police chased him into the Circus Circus parking lot before he collided with a police cruiser.

No one was injured. The FBI is assisting in the investigation.
