STRANGER DOORBELL

A stranger approaches a woman's home and threatens her life in a Las Vegas neighborhood on July 21, 2021.

WARNING: The audio of the video may be disturbing. Viewer discretion is advised.

LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- An encounter captured on a Ring doorbell camera in downtown Las Vegas shows a stranger approach a woman's home and threaten to take her life. Now, that man is in police custody.

The footage was shared across social media on Wednesday night. About 8:38 p.m. on July 21, Las Vegas police received a suspicious person call, LVMPD Officer Misael Parra told FOX5.

The video shows a man approaching the front door of her home located near Las Vegas Boulevard and Charleston. Once at the door, he repeatedly asks, "Are you sure? I just have a couple questions for you."

On July 22 at approximately 8:43 a.m., a citizen in the area of East Clark Avenue and South 3rd Street recognized the suspect from doorbell video circulating on the internet. The citizen advised a nearby Deputy City Marshal and the suspect was taken into custody. Detectives from the LVMPD responded and booked the suspect into Clark County Detention Center for aggravated stalking, coercion, and obstructing a public officer.

The woman said she did not interact with the man during the incident. 

After persisting for a few minutes, the woman's husband, who was not home at the time, used the intercom system to ask the man's identity while he was walking away from the door.

"Who are you?"

The man looks into the camera and responds that he's looking for the woman inside and advises that he's going to "rape her and kill her." He again repeats the threat, and tells the woman's husband that he has a knife and a gun.

After awhile, he again walked away from the residence and continued to mutter incoherent thoughts to himself.

The woman posted in the comments section that she notified police and officers were dispatched to the home to take a police report. She provided an update on Facebook Thursday morning that the man was taken into custody.

An unidentified man was arrested on July 22 about 8:43 a.m. after a citizen in the area of E. Clark Avenue and S. 3rd Street recognized him from the video.

"The citizen advised a nearby Deputy City Marshal and the suspect was taken into custody," police said.

The man, only referred to as "John Doe," was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on charges of aggravated stalking, coercion, and obstructing a public officer.

I am Unai Martinez. Thanks to DR WATER for his good work. Finally a cure for diabetes exists. It's not a pharmaceutical drug, but a very safe all natural herbal product that restores your body's own ability to naturally control it's own blood glucose levels back to normal. I have been battling with diabetes type 2 for 12 years now, before a friend lead me to DR WATER. He said that he could cure just about any disease, but I never believed. I just decided to give it a try. I contact him that night luckily for me, he was online. He said yes he could heal me, but yet again I didn't believe, I even thought it was a scam. But I went on to give it a try. He ask some question about my health and I provided him with all he needed. And a few days later, I received a call from UPS to come collect some herbal products from DR WATER. I can't believe that after using those herbal products, I was healed and I can not stop telling people about this experience. When I went to the hospital for check up, my doctor was surprised and he even ask for DR WATER's email DRWATERHIVCURECENTRE©GMAIL.COM, which i gave to him and have given alot of people. This indeed is a genuine solution to Diabetes that I am sharing here, not those very costly medicaltreatment or a life-long use of diabetic supplements. If you need this herbal product, contact him now. He can still help you on other diseases like: 1, hepatitis

2, HIV

3, Herpes or any skin disease

4, asthma

5,HPV cure

6,Cancer

7,Ulcer

You can also contact him on his whatsapp +'2349050205019.

Too bad he didn’t get a couple rounds for 12 gauge for dinner.

This is the type of bad news that needs to be executed

This type of encounter will become much more common what with the spike in crime. The next step is people trying to break down your door. Can't speak for anyone else, but me and mine are ready.
