Witness sought in Thursday robbery attempt

Carson City deputies are looking for a good Samaritan who interrupted the armed robbery of a man Thursday on Northridge Drive, chasing off the assailants.

Sgt. Brian Humphrey said a 28-year-old man was walking alone eastbound on Northridge Drive near the roundabout at Table Rock Drive when he saw two men walking northbound toward him from Table Rock.

"The two guys start fighting with the victim and take the victim's wallet," said Humphrey.

He said the victim reported that a passerby stopped and, possibly armed with a gun, chased off the assailants.

The good Samaritan left after he drove the victim home, said Humphrey. En route home, the victim called police and took them back to the roundabout where blood was found, said Humphrey.

Humphrey said the man only had a few dollars in his wallet.

"We are definitely interested in talking to that good Samaritan who intervened," he said.

The assailants are described as Hispanic men in their late teens or early 20s. One of the men was wearing a gray shirt, the other a blue shirt. Both men had shaved heads. The victim's wallet is a black and white, Nixon-brand wallet.

The good Samaritan is described as being an "older male" driving a dark colored Jeep Cherokee, or similar-shaped vehicle.

Anyone with information is asked to call Humphrey at 887-2020 ext. 41227.
