LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Las Vegas Metropolitan Police released a public service announcement on their Facebook page encouraging the public to be aware of their surroundings at all times of day, as it released surveillance video of a random attack on a woman in broad daylight.

The department said the woman was leaving a doctor's appointment in Summerlin and as she was entering her car, a man ran up from behind and attacked her. That woman fought back, but the man did run off after stealing the woman's wedding ring. LVMPD said detectives at the Summerlin Area Command were able to eventually arrest the suspect.

The victim of the attack appears in the video and said that she was shocked since it took place in broad daylight in what she thought was a safe area. The victim said also urged vigilance at all times.

LVMPD urged the public to never be afraid to report suspicious activity, and don't hesitate to call 911 or 311 if help is needed.

Too bad the thug didn’t try to resist arrest or drive away.


Governor Newsom is releasing 65,000 violent MURDERERS and criminals this week- 20,000 will be bussed to Las Vegas for the the next crime wave. Sisolak is a Communist- Las Vegas is about to be very very dangerous. Buy a gun and learn how to use it- the criminals coming here are very violent and have no fear of being incarcerated.


13/90 loser animal , obummer family relationship!


Thugs and hoodlums are everywhere, never assume because you live in Summerlin there's not some scumbag lurking around the corner waiting to strike. Then again, there's only so much you can do. Thugs like this, who brazenly commit random acts of violence, are the most dangerous element in society and should be locked up for life.


Carry mace and be aware of everything. This isn't Disneyland any more.


I don't know why people are so shocked and surprised when th


They are targeted by crime. It reaches a lot of people and diligence and awareness, paying attention to what and who are around you. Unfortunately, many don't believe crime will touch them and then can't believe when it does. Statistically, it's not if people are impacted by crime, it's when.
