LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police are investigating the robbery of an armored truck just before noon Friday at an outlet mall in downtown Las Vegas.
Police said a guard from the armored truck was making his rounds at Premium Outlets North when two men came up behind him and struck him with a baseball bat. The robbers took the guard's bag.
The guard fired a shot at the robbers as they were running away but the bullet did not strike anyone, police said. The robbers drove away from the scene in a light-colored four-door sedan, possibly with mismatched wheels.
The robbers are described as two white or Hispanic men in their 20s. The first man was last seen a black hooded sweatshirt, stocking cap, sunglasses and an unknown colored shirt. A clothing description of the second robber is not known.
Both men had stubble beards, wore construction reflector vests and are described as being between 5 feet 8 inches and 5 feet 11 inches.
The guard was taken to University Medical Center for evaluation. He was not seriously injured.
Anyone with information is urged to call the Metro's robbery section at 702-828-3591 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555. Tips directly leading to an arrest or an indictment processed through Crime Stoppers may result in a cash reward.
