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.

New Citizens Take Oath of Allegiance at Red Rock Canyon

 

More than 100 people became new citizens of the United States of America Monday, during a ceremony at the Red Rock National Conservation Area.

The ceremony was scheduled for Martin Luther King Jr. Day to mark the 50th anniversary of Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech.

This is the first naturalization ceremony to be held at Red Rock Canyon. U.S. District Court Judge Philip M. Pro administered the Oath of Allegiance to the new citizens that hailed from dozens of different countries.

"We come from India and we definitely don't have this kind of opportunity and freedom.  We find America very embracing, and that equality and freedom we highly value. We do not take that for granted," Michelle and Annie Abraham who became U.S. citizens said.

It can take years from the time that immigrants apply for citizenship for their paperwork to be finished. For the Abrahams, it took five years to get to this day.
