Home Invasion Suspect Puts Neighborhood on Alert

Home Invasion Suspect Puts Neighborhood on Alert

LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police are looking for a home invasion suspect that attacked an elderly man with a hand saw, but they need help to solve this seemingly random crime.

Residents in Peccole Ranch are on the look out since their neighbors were targeted. Police said this was a brazen attack and want to catch the suspect before he strikes again.

It was around 7pm on January, 15th when police said a violent home invasion occurred as the suspect, believed to be in his late teens or early 20's, broke into the home armed with a saw looking for trouble.

Neighbors said one of the victims, a man in his 80's, was sliced on his hand by the robber. The suspect got away with several stolen items and police said the method of operation on this crook is a little unusual.

Sewer Line Work Forces Lane Closures

Sewer Line Work Forces Lane Closures

 

A sewer line upgrade will force the closure of lanes at a busy intersection.

The inside lanes at Sahara Avenue and Fort Apache Road will be closed in both directions now through February 15. The closures will be in place 9 p.m. to 5 a.m. Monday through Friday.

The city is doing the work to avoid a second sewer overflow at the intersection. The project is not a big one: two new manholes will be installed, a sewer line will be repaired and a buried manhole will be raised. However, because of the heavy traffic in the area and the amount of equipment needed, crews will need more time and space to finish it.
