Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- An armored truck was robbed at an outlet mall in Las Vegas on Friday.

An armored truck was making its rounds when one of the truck operators was approached by two men with baseball bats. The men attacked him and stole the satchel he was carrying.
Police say the suspects then tried to flee and a nearby guard followed them. One of the men tried to attack the guard. The guard took out a gun and fired at the man, but missed him.

The suspects are described as two white or Hispanic males, believed to be in their 20s. Both suspects had stubble beards, wore construction reflector vests and are described as being between 5'11" and 5'8" tall.
