This is a previous booking photo of Javier Reyes that Metro Police had on file.

Metro Police are asking the public’s help finding a suspect accused of stealing an elderly couple’s car and threatening an ex-girlfriend.

Police said Javier Reyes should be considered armed and dangerous based on prior incidents.

The first incident happened Dec. 29 in the 6300 block of East Sahara Avenue, where Reyes allegedly confronted an ex-girlfriend at her home and struck her several times.

Police learned of the situation via an open 911 phone call with audible screaming in the background. Reyes later returned to the same residence and, armed with a firearm, continued threatening the female, police said.

He fled before officers arrived.

Detectives spotted Reyes on Thursday in the 10000 block of Delray Beach Avenue in the northwest valley, police said.

Reyes fled again and then broke a sliding-glass door to gain entry to an elderly couple’s home, police said. Reyes took the victims’ keys and drove away in their vehicle, a blue, four-door Hyundai Sonata.

The stolen vehicle bore a Nevada handicap plate with number PH72725.

Authorities described Reyes as a Hispanic male who is about 5-feet-8-inches tall and weighs 190 pounds. He has a shaved head and brown eyes.

Anyone with information about Reyes is asked to contact Metro’s Criminal Apprehension Team at 702-205-0245. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or visit www.crimestoppersofnv.com.

  1. It appears he's done more damage to homes than he's ever produced. Such poor choices. We have a choice too and that ain't gonna be what this dude likes.
