North Las Vegas Police today released an image of a suspect involved in a robbery and kidnapping that occurred in March.

About 10:15 p.m. March 5, an unidentified man approached a 52-year-old North Las Vegas woman who was waiting for a bus at a bus stop on Aliante Parkway, police said. He brandished a large knife and forced the woman to walk to the City Stop located at 7009 Aliante Parkway.

The man forced the woman to withdraw money from an ATM machine located inside the convenience store, police said. They walked out of the store, where she gave him the money and he ran away.

The man is described as black, about 20 years old, 5-foot-10-inches tall, a thin build, clean shaven and wearing a black beanie.

On a videotape the man is seen entering the store directly behind the woman, police said.

Anyone with information about this or any crime in or around North Las Vegas is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
