SPARKS, Nev. -- A man appears to have fallen victim to a robber's ploy Saturday night in Sparks.
Police say the unidentified victim was riding his motorcycle on Galletti Way near Fisherman's Park I around 10:15PM. He saw a body near the road, and stopped to check on the person.
As it turns out, it was a trap. The man was robbed at gunpoint when he got off of his motorcycle. The robbers got away with undisclosed items. Police were called but a search revealed nothing.
He says the first robber is Hispanic, in his early 30s, 6' tall and 170-180 pounds. He was scruffy and wearing dark, dirty clothing. Police believe the man was armed with a revolver.
The second was also Hispanic, in his late 30's, 5'7" and heavy set. He was wearing dark, dirty clothing and had bushy and unkempt hair.
Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Secret Witness at 322-4900.
