Report: Suspect impersonates pizza man to gain entry into home with partner
Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Two suspects were arrested after allegedly trying to burglarize a home in Las Vegas.
On May 7 at approximately 11:45 p.m., a man and his girlfriend reported being inside their home, in the area of Blue Diamond and Buffalo, when they were awakened by someone slamming on their door.
The man said he could see someone through the peephole, who identified himself at a pizza delivery person.
He called 911 to report the man, as a similar situation occurred a few weeks ago involving the same individual.
The man yelled through the door to inform the suspect he had called 911, hoping it would motivate him to leave. Thinking the suspect left, he unlocked the front door to look outside.
Just then, two male suspects forced the door open. One was described as being armed with a firearm. The man said he was struck two times in the face by the firearm, which allowed the suspects to make their way through.
According to the arrest report, the man was detained, beaten and threatened with being shot or stabbed by both suspects.
When police arrived shortly after, one of the suspects, who was armed with a knife and brass knuckles, Raymond Maurice Goodwin, was taken into custody.
The other suspect, armed with a gun, ran out the back of the house to escape police.
Goodwin was booked into the Clark County Detention Center. During his time there, he gave up information which helped detectives get photos of the other suspect for a photo lineup.
Several weeks later, the male victim positively identified the second suspect as Christopher Stiles from the lineup. His girlfriend also positively identified Stiles.
Stiles was later tracked down by police and booked into CCDC for burglary, kidnapping and battery.
