Murder Suspect With Air Jordan Neck Tattoo Snaps Handcuffs And Escapes Custody During Interrogation
Alonso Perez, 25, was being questioned about an Aug. 27 shooting death when detectives stepped out of the room, giving him time to somehow break out.
A manhunt is on for a Nevada murder suspect who managed to flee custody while being questioned by detectives Friday.
Alonso Perez, 25, was being questioned about the Aug. 27 shooting 31-year-old Mohammad Robinson when investigators stepped out of the room.
"After the detective stepped out of the room, Perez turned the handcuffs until he broke free and escaped the building," North Las Vegas police spokesman Aaron Patty said in a statement.
Patty said police don't know how much time elapsed before they realized the suspect was gone, the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Cops say Perez stole a Ford F-250 pickup truck from a local business after he fled. That truck has since been recovered and returned to the owner.
As of Saturday morning, however, Perez had not been found.
Police hope one distinctive feature might help bring Perez into custody sooner rather than later: his tattoo.
The fugitive has the iconic Air Jordan logo etched into his neck.
Cops say Perez is Hispanic, about 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds. He has black hair, brown eyes and a goatee.
Anyone who sees Perez is urged not to approach him and contact authorities. Anyone with information about where Perez may be is urged to call the North Las Vegas police.
