Las Vegas Metropolitan Police apprehended an armed-robbery suspect Wednesday night at Circus-Circus Manor. 

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- On Wednesday, Las Vegas Metropolitan police said officers apprehended a suspect wanted in connected to an armed robbery reported in February.

Metro Police Lt. David Gordon said officers were patrolling the 3600 block of West Tropicana Avenue on July 10 at around 9:30 p.m. when they spotted an adult male suspect.

The suspect was wanted in connection to an armed robbery that was reported earlier this year.

Patrol officers attempted to stop the suspect, who was driving a white Mercedes sport-utility vehicle, near Blue Diamond Road and Interstate-15, Gordon said. The suspect failed to stop and continued driving.

"The Air Unit surveilled the suspect vehicle as it navigated on various roads and through the southern part of the valley," Gordon added.

The suspect drove south on I-15 towards the state line before he made a u-turn and started heading north on the highway, Las Vegas police said. The suspect eventually exited I-15 and drove towards Circus-Circus.

According to Gordon, the suspect and an unidentified male passenger exited the vehicle and fled on foot. Police converged on the area and the suspect was taken into custody. 

The suspect was identified in police booking logs as Domico Mangum, 30. He's facing several charges, including driving under the influence, robbery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery, reckless driving and evading police.

"Officers canvassed the area for the unidentified male passenger, but were not able to locate him," Gordon said. 

No other details were immediately available.
