A man who shot another man at McDonalds simply because he didn’t open the door for a woman has slipped away from police custody and is still on the loose.
Alonso Perez, 25, shot and killed Mohammed Robinson at the McDonald’s restaurant in North Las Vegas Saturday, August 27, simply because he didn’t hold the door open for a woman.
Now, police have let him slip right through their fingers. North Las Vegas Police arrested Perez Friday morning around 10:00 a.m. and took him in for questioning. They had him handcuffed, and a detective left him alone in the interview room.
Perez managed to slip out of the handcuffs and escaped from the building. He then stole a white 2016 Ford F-250 pickup truck that was parked at a nearby business and simply drove away. The pickup was found on Sunday, but Perez is nowhere to be seen.
Police describe Perez as “armed and dangerous”, and are asking for help finding him. He is a Hispanic man, 6 ft 3 inches, 200 pounds, and has a tattoo of the Air Jordan logo on his neck behind his left ear.
Robinson’s family are outraged that police didn’t guard Perez more carefully, and let him get away so easily. Robinson’s sister, Maggie Robinson, said, “I don’t understand it at all…You are interviewing a murder suspect so you mean you couldn’t have another person there?”
According to reports on the murder, the woman who Robinson “failed” to open the door for was actually with Perez. Maggie Robinson pointed out, why didn’t Perez open the door for her himself? “If that was your girlfriend, your wife, whoever she was to you. You could have got out of your car. You should’ve been there to hold the door open for her,” Robinson said.
