This man is sought in a September robbery of a Las Vegas business.

Metro Police released surveillance camera photos of a man suspected of robbing beer from a central Las Vegas Valley store early last month.

The robbery happened near South Decatur Boulevard and West Sahara Avenue shortly after 1 a.m. on Sept. 11, police said.

The suspect entered the store and obtained beer from the refrigerator section. The suspect was attempting to leave the business when he was confronted by an employee.

The suspect then brandished a gun from his waist band, aimed it at the employee and instructed him to back off or else he would kill him, police said.

The suspect is described as a white man in his early 20s, 6 feet tall, 170 pounds with tattoos on his arms. Police said he left the business in a white four-door Mercedes Benz.

Anyone with information is urged to call Metro's Robbery Section at 702-828-3591, or — to remain anonymous — to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-555 or crimestoppersofnv.com.
