LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) – Two men were arrested and a third remained at large after police say the three tied up and robbed members of a south Las Vegas household during an armed home invasion Monday morning, according to authorities.
The attack happened just before 4 a.m. Monday at the home on the 2100 block of Sierra Stone Lane, a Las Vegas Metro Police statement reported.
Witnesses said the three suspects tricked a child inside the house to come outside, confronted the victim with a firearm, then forced the victim back inside the residence.
The suspects tied up the remaining residents and made off with several items from the house before fleeing the scene.
Information about the suspect’s vehicle gathered by the LVMPD South Central Area Command Patrol Investigations Section ultimately led detectives to that vehicle in the area of Warm Springs Road and Durango Drive, where they arrested the driver. Members of the LVMPD SWAT team later served a search warrant at a nearby location, where the second suspect was arrested and a majority of the stolen items were recovered.
Jonathan Mika, 34, and Dominic Maratita, 41, were booked into the Clark County Detention Center on a variety of charges, including robbery and kidnapping counts.
Detectives were still working to identify the third man involved in the attack. Anyone with information about the whereabouts or identity of the third suspect was asked to contact the South Central Area Command Investigations Section at 702-828-8313.
