LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Las Vegas police said they were looking for a man suspected in two robberies of women in Summerlin within the last week.

Police said a man was involved with at least two "street robberies" in the 1100 block of Crestdale Lane, near The Crossing Park, and the 10500 block of Horseshoe Falls Court, near Oxford Park.

Both happened after midnight, police said. The suspect made both female victims go to a secluded area and made them disrobe or partially disrobe. 

They described the suspect as a black man, about 5'9" tall, 230 lbs. He was last wearing a dark grey hoodie and was reportedly armed with a handgun.

A neighbor who did not want to be identified said it was late Saturday night when she heard a commotion outside her front door.

She told FOX5 she heard voices before she heard a woman scream.

Neighbors were told by police the victim that night was a pizza delivery driver.

“Scary, certainly, and not something you expect in this neighborhood in the Summerlin area,” said Rich Baker.

Police urged the public to be aware of individuals "walking around stationary vehicles in parking lots." 

Anyone with information was urged to call Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department's fusion watch section at (702) 449-3911, or through CrimeStoppers
