Lewdness Suspect Pleads Not Guilty
(LAS VEGAS, KXNT)– 40 year old Bryan Hargrave, arrested on a lewdness charge involving a child under the age of fourteen, has pleaded not guilty in a court appearance Wednesday.
Police say the man frequented youth hockey events at Fiesta Ice Arena on North Rancho Drive, where he spent considerable time with kids and their parents dating back to 2008.
Investigators have issued an appeal to parents of other potential victims. Police add there was a similar allegation made against Hargrave in 2008, but the case was closed. Police now say they will re-open that investigation. They add that Hargrave attempted suicide just before his arrest.
Hargrave remains at the Clark County Detention Center, where he was booked on a single count of Lewdness With A Child Under Fourteen.
