Metro Police say this man robbed a business near Nellis Boulevard and Desert Inn Road in the early morning hours of July 9.

Metro Police are seeking the public’s help identifying the suspect in an armed robbery of an eastern valley business last month.

Police said the man, believed to be 25 to 30 years old, entered a store shortly before 4 a.m. July 9 near Desert Inn Road and Nellis Boulevard. He pointed a gun at the clerk and demanded all money from the register, police said.

The suspect — who fled after the clerk complied — was last seen wearing a black jacket, dark pants and a black mask, police said. Authorities described him as a black man who is about 5-feet-8-inches tall and 150 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call Metro’s robbery section at 702-828-3591. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
