Victim of attempted sexual assault speaks to Action News

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police are still searching for the suspect who sexually assaulted a woman during a frightening armed robbery.

The victim spoke out to Action News and wants the man off the streets.

The suspect walked into a business on Rancho near Charleston last Thursday night, and asked for change.

The woman working behind the counter was Sara, "He started walking behind the counter and I told him I'll help him from in front of the counter."

Seconds later, Sara knew he was not there for change.

"He pulled a knife on me and told me to open the register," explained Sara.

After that, Sara said the man asked her if there was a back door. He ordered her to take him there and put her up against a wall.

Sara said the man tried sexually assaulted her, "He started going under my blouse. I was closing my eyes because I didn't want to see when he stabbed me. It was really scary."

So afraid, Sara didn't want to call police after the man ran out the back door, "Having his face right here, telling me to shut up and that he was going to come back and kill me."

Sara wants this man in custody, "I don't want anyone else going through whatever I did."

If you know anything about the suspect, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
