$1,000 reward offered in strongarm robbery

A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of two robbers responsible for beating and robbing an unarmed adult male adult outside a Stateline casino.

At approximately 9:45 pm Nov. 10, the two men were speaking with the victim outside the casino, when they suddenly jumped and battered him; punching and kicking him repeatedly after he fell to the ground, according to the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

One then took the victim's wallet, and they quickly fled the area on foot. The suspects were last seen running behind the casino, out of view to the southwest.

From review of surveillance video, the robbers appear to be male Caucasians or light-skinned Hispanics, about 18-25 years old, both of medium height and build, with short cut dark-colored hair.

Douglas County Secret Witness is offering a reward of $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the suspects responsible.

Anyone with any information regarding this incident is asked to call DCSO Investigator D, Slater at 775-586-7255 or Douglas County Secret Witness at: 775-78-CRIME (775-782-7463).
