NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (KXNT) — North Las Vegas police officials confirmed a homicide suspect who escaped from one of their interrogation rooms last week was recaptured late Tuesday.
North Las Vegas police Officer Aaron Patty said Alonso Perez was located in an apartment near East Charleston Boulevard and North Pecos Street around 8 p.m. Tuesday and surrendered without incident when police and FBI agents found him. The location was less than a mile from where police found a truck he’s believed to have stolen to get away.
The arrest came four days after Perez broke the hinge on a pair of metal handcuffs and escaped from an interview room at the North Las Vegas police station. Perez stole a Ford F-250 work truck from a nearby parking lot to leave the area. That vehicle was later found in a neighborhood east of downtown Las Vegas over the weekend.
Investigators said Perez, 25, was identified as the gunman who shot and killed Mohammed Robinson, 31, outside a Las Vegas McDonald’s restaurant on Aug. 27 after Robinson allegedly didn’t hold a door open for a woman.
