LAS VEGAS (AP) - Two men face multiple felony charges including kidnapping, robbery and impersonating an officer after they were accused of luring female dancers to a Las Vegas apartment, robbing one and showing badges and holding the other women and a man at gunpoint.

Police say Christopher Cruz Ontiveros-Mendez and Charles Sean Rush were arrested Friday at an apartment on Russell Road near Buffalo Drive.

The 28-year-old Ontiveros-Mendez and 29-year-old Rush told police they were bounty hunters trying to apprehend a pimp who skipped bail.

Police say one dancer reported that Ontiveros-Mendez identified himself as a police officer, told her she was under arrest, handcuffed her and took her purse before letting her go.

Police say they arrived to find Ontiveros-Mendez and Rush holding another dancer and a man in handcuffs at gunpoint.
