LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police say they've arrested one of two men suspected of posing as Mormon missionaries and telling a man they wanted to talk about religion before robbing him.
Metro police say in a statement that 28-year-old Abraham Austin was arrested Friday in North Las Vegas and charged with seven counts of robbery, burglary, battery and kidnapping.
Police say Austin and another man, identified as 25-year-old Robert Estall, posed as missionaries on June 27 when they knocked on the door of a Las Vegas home.
The man who answered told police he talked with the two men for about five minutes before they attacked and robbed him at gunpoint.
Authorities are still searching for Estall and are asking for anyone with information about his location to contact police.
