2 arrested in attack at Las Vegas casino garage

A woman leaving New York-New York in March didn’t realize she was being trailed.

When she got to her car in the parking garage, a pimp and his accomplice allegedly trapped and stabbed her in the face, according to a Metro Police arrest report released today.

The pair — Stanley Rodriquez, 26, and Mary Robertson, 27 — were arrested Friday and Sunday, respectively, in connection with the attack. The Clark County District Attorney’s Office has charged them with seven felony offenses, including conspiracy to commit murder and attempted murder.

The arrest report details the following alleged version of events:

The victim had received a message from Rodriquez — a pimp she knew as “Stoney” from Oakland, Calif. — indicating that she owed him money. She figured it was a case of mistaken identity.

About a week later, on March 26, the woman was attempting to leave New York-New York when a white BMW pulled up, blocking her car. Rodriquez exited the vehicle, entered the victim’s car from the passenger side door and began yelling at her. Two women were with him.

Rodriquez snatched her clutch containing a couple hundred dollars, one unidentified woman slashed a car tire and Robertson stabbed the victim in the face.

When the trio left, the victim called 911 from the parking garage. Medics transported her to University Medical Center, where she received 18 stitches for the stab wound.

Detectives obtained surveillance video from the casino, which showed the suspects appeared to be watching the victim at a bar before following her to the garage.

Detectives also learned the white BMW had been towed in February after Rodriquez was arrested in Las Vegas. Robertson had claimed the vehicle at towing company.

The victim positively identified the pair in photo lineup, so authorities issued arrest warrants for Rodriquez and Robertson.

The victim told detectives she never worked for Rodriquez as a prostitute in California or Nevada, but she was acquainted with him. She suspected the attack was perhaps to “teach her a lesson.”

Rodriquez and Robertson were booked into the Clark County Detention Center, where they remained without bail, according to jail records. They are scheduled to appear in court Tuesday morning.
