North Las Vegas police on Friday afternoon reported a homicide suspect had escaped custody.

Alonso Perez, 25, had been taken into custody about 10 a.m. Friday. He was taken to the North Las Vegas Police Department Detective Bureau, where he was placed in an interview room in handcuffs.

When a detective stepped out of the room, Perez turned the handcuff until he broke free. He then escaped from the building and stole a pickup truck.

The stolen truck is a 2016 Ford F-250 bearing Nevada license plate number 26C819.

Saturday, North Las Vegas police said the truck was located, but Perez remained on the run. 

Perez is Hispanic, 6’3” tall and 200 pounds. He has black hair, brown eyes and a goatee. He was wearing a white sports jersey with two blue stripes on the sleeves and the number 21 on the front and back. He was also wearing dark shorts and black shoes.

Perez additionally has a 3-inch “Air Jordan” logo tattoo on the left side of his neck.

Perez is a suspect in a homicide that took place on Aug. 27. At about 11:45 p.m., police located 31-year-old Mohammad Nestor-Robinson with apparent gunshot wounds in the 3000 block of North Las Vegas Boulevard. Nestor-Robinson was pronounced dead, and his killer fled the scene prior to the arrival of officers.

FOX5 spoke with the mother Nestor-Robinson. "He is running scared. Someone else might get hurt. Someone else might get killed," said Katra Nestor. 

"I feel sorry for him because he allowed his life to go so far as to shoot someone without even saying a word to them," said Nestor. 

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Perez was urged to call the North Las Vegas Police Department at 702-633-9111. You may also call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.

Police stressed that Perez is considered armed and dangerous and urged people not to approach him.
