Three brothers chased down, disarmed and bloodied a man after he allegedly stabbed their cousin on the Las Vegas Strip early Sunday morning.
Just before 2 a.m. Sunday, Kim Miles, walking on the Strip with his family, bumped into another man, according to the Metro Police arrest report.
Miles told police that the man, identified as Miguel Treto, 26, became angry and yelled a derogatory term at Miles and his family, who are black. The men kept walking in opposite directions at that point.
Kim Miles, his brothers Aaron Miles and Kamiko Miles, and their cousin Tevin Hayes all sat down on a wall outside the Quad when they say Treto approached them and challenged them to a fight, according to the arrest report.
The family says Treto, accompanied by two unidentified males, started a fight with them, punching Kim and then stabbing Hayes in the back.
The three brothers, realizing their cousin had been injured, chased after Treto. The two people the family say were with Treto got away, but the brothers caught up to Treto.
Kamiko, who the arrest report says was intoxicated during the incident, punched Treto after they caught up with him, causing him to drop the knife. Kamiko then struck Treto “several times” while he was on the ground, according to the report.
Treto, who was also described as intoxicated in the report, said he was chased by a group of black males and never had a knife. Treto said he was alone, and was attacked by one of the men.
Metro Police found a black and silver folding knife and blood where Treto was found injured and more blood where the altercation allegedly started.
Treto, after being treated for his injuries at Sunrise Hospital, was arrested for attempted murder with a deadly weapon, assault and battery with a deadly weapon. Treto, of Azusa, Calif., is being held without bail at Clark County Detention Center.
