Armed Robbery

An armed robbery allegedly held up Love’s Travel Stop on Grand Avenue shortly after midnight on Monday.

An armed robber held up Love’s Travel Stop at 2401 N. Grand Ave. shortly after midnight on Monday, said Las Vegas Police Chief Antonio Salazar.

The suspect may have been a Hispanic male, weighing 210 to 215 pounds, Salazar said. He was wearing a black hoodie, black baseball cap with gray lettering, tan pants and dark-colored shoes.

He was allegedly carrying a pistol.

As of this morning, Salazar said he planned to meet with the investigating officers for additional details.  It’s not known if the suspect stole anything.

“I’ve been trying to get a hold of the guys that worked (the investigation),” he said. “We’re still looking into that.”

It’s also not known if the suspect left on foot or in a vehicle.

According to a Facebook post apparently made by the clerk who was held up, the suspect ran toward a nearby mobile home park. The Optic tried on Monday to reach out to the clerk, but couldn’t reach him.

A manager at Love’s referred The Optic to the company’s media relations specialist. Caitlin Campbell didn’t return a phone call.
