Two men robbed an armored truck security guard around 11:50 a.m. Friday as he was making pickups at stores at the Las Vegas Premium Outlets North near Interstate 15 and Alta Drive, Metro Police officials said.

Police said the suspects beat the security guard with baseball bats after he left a store, and stole his satchel. The guard recovered and began chasing the suspects through the outlet mall, when one turned around and to attack him again.

The guard then fired a shot at the suspect. The shot missed and didn’t strike anyone, officials said. The suspects escaped in a light-colored, older model four-door sedan headed north on Grand Central Parkway.

Metro Police are searching for two white or Hispanic men in their 20s. One man was seen wearing a black hoodie, stocking cap, sunglasses and an unknown colored shirt. The other suspect's clothing is unknown. Both men had stubble beards, wore construction reflector vests and stood between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-11.

Armored truck crews work in pairs and the security guard’s partner stayed with the truck, police said.
