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.
