Murder Suspect Escapes From North Las Vegas Police Interrogation Room

Authorities in Las Vegas are searching for a murder suspect who managed to escape from a police department interrogation room, reports CBS News.

According to NBC News, Alonso Perez, 25, was taken into custody on Fridaymorning in connection to a homicide that occurred at an area fast food restaurant on August 27.

After roughly two hours of questioning at the North Las Vegas Police Department, the interrogating detective left the room.

Perez was somehow able to break out of his handcuffs. He then exited the room and ultimately fled the building, notes FOX News.

Once outside, he allegedly stole a white pickup truck, which has since been located and returned.

Police are still searching for Perez and authorities consider him to be armed and dangerous.
