Metro Police is investigating a reported kidnapping of a 17-year-old girl brought to Las Vegas from California.
Security personnel at the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, 3700 W. Flamingo Road., reported the incident at 7:08 a.m. Wednesday to police, said Metro spokesman Jose Hernandez. The 17-year-old had told Rio security she had escaped from two men who had brought her to Las Vegas and refused to let her leave once they arrived, Hernandez said. It was unknown if she came to Las Vegas willingly.
Metro vice detectives are investigating the case as a prostitution-related kidnapping, Hernandez said.
The girl’s parents have been notified, he added. No suspect information has been released, and Metro continues searching for the two men.
Anyone with information is urged to leave an anonymous tip with Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-555.
Carnival lasts all year at the Rio. With a float occasionally passing overhead and dropping beads while feathered dancers fire up the gamblers below, the Rio tries to keep its 120,000-square foot casino jumping with excitement. Special Brazilian mixed-drinks are also served throughout the casino. The hotel suites tend to be larger than similar priced rooms on the Strip and many offer excellent views with floor to ceiling windows.
The Rio offers some quality shows like "Penn & Teller" and "Chippendales." Many come to the Rio for the nightlife at the VooDoo Lounge, located on the 51st floor, or McFadden's Irish Pub on the casino level.
Others come for a bit relaxation at the Rio Spa or pool area and still others come to shop at the hotel's 60,000 square feet of shops. In each of these endeavors, the Rio attempts to make the experience a bit more fun and spontaneous.
The Rio also offers guests a variety of dining choices from all-American food at the All-American Bar & Grille to Gaylord India Restaurant for something a little spicier and even Carnival World Buffet for the indecisive.
