Police chase ends when car crashes into house

A police chase following a convenience store robbery ended early Monday morning when a car crashed into an vacant house, according to a North Las Vegas news release.

About 3 a.m., four men entered a convenience store located in the 400 block of West Centennial Road, officials said.

A clerk was hit in the head with a handgun, and the men demanded money before fleeing with an undisclosed amount of cash, officials said.

North Las Vegas Police officers pursued the suspects, who crashed a car into an unoccupied house near Lone Mountain Road and Bruce Street and then fled on foot, officials said.

Police arrested Anthony Clark, 21, but are still searching for three other people.

Clark will face charges including robbery with a deadly weapon and will be booked at the Las Vegas Detention Center, the release said.

Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call the North Las Vegas Police Department at (702) 633-9111 or leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.

  1. The house was not vacant, it was occupied by an entire family that was sleeping upstairs. Fortunately nobody in the house was injured.
