SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — Police say a Sparks resident who was trying to be a Good Samaritan ended up being the victim of an armed robbery.
Police say the man was riding his motorcycle near the Truckee River about 10:15 p.m. Saturday when he spotted someone who appeared to need help along the road near Fisherman's Park on Galletti Way.
When he stopped to assist, he says the suspect pulled out a gun and robbed him.
Police say a second man appeared to be an accomplice in the scam.
They're looking for two Hispanic men. One is described as being unshaven, in his early 30s, about 6 feet tall, 170-180 pounds. The other is in his late 30s, about 5-foot-7, with a heavy-set build. He is described as having bushy, messy hair.
If you have any information, call Secret Witness at 322-4900. They are offering a $1,500 reward for information leading to arrest.
