LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – Authorities are asking for the public’s help to identify a crook they say robbed and injured a woman while stealing a Jeep near Fremont Street back in April, according to authorities.
The attack happened in a parking lot near Fremont and 6th streets around 10:45 p.m. on April 25, a Las Vegas Metro Police statement reported.
According to investigators, a woman parked her car in the lot and was helping a man pay for parking when the suspect hit her with his fist and grabbed her wallet.
The suspect jumped into a white Jeep belonging to the male victim and when the woman grabbed the vehicle’s door handle, the Jeep pulled away, dragging her to the ground.
The woman suffered a non-life-threatening injury to her head and was transported to University Medical Center.
