A man who allegedly dressed as a Mormon missionary while committing armed robbery has turned himself in, according to Metro Police, joining his alleged partner in crime who is already in custody.

Robert Estall, 25, the outstanding suspect in the crime, turned himself in Wednesday, according to a police press release, and was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on charges of conspiracy to commit robbery, burglary with a gun, battery to commit robbery, robbery with a deadly weapon, battery with a deadly weapon, and two counts of first-degree kidnapping.

Early in the morning of June 27, two men posing as Mormon missionaries knocked on the door of home in the area of Flamingo Road and Buffalo Drive, according to Metro Police.

The suspects, wearing black pants and white shirts with black ties, chatted with the victim for a few minutes before jumping and punching him, police said. They forced their way inside and robbed the victim at gunpoint.

One suspect identified after police released information to the public, Abraham Austin, 28, was arrested Aug. 23 in the 4200 block of East Craig Road.

Both men are being held without bail at the detention center.
