Las Vegas Man Attacks 10 With Hammer

 

Authorities in Nevada arrested a man on a rampage with a sledgehammer Friday (Oct. 23). Las Vegas resident Damien D. Robins, 31, attacked 10 people in an hour, including an elderly couple. 

Robins is being charged with six counts of attempted murder, and a single count of assault with a deadly weapon.

Reports Fox 5 Vegas:

Paul said the incident started in Boulder City around 8 p.m. Friday when Robins is accused of attacking a woman in a car with a one-handed sledgehammer in a convenience store parking lot. He then attacked two elderly people in the parking lot of a Boulder City auto parts store, according to Paul.

Next, police said Robins ran a driver off the road on U.S. 93 and hit the male driver several times with the hammer. Authorities said after that attack, Robins drove off and ran another driver off the roadway and attacked that driver with the hammer.

Police said Robins then drove into Henderson and cut off a driver at Greenway Road and Horizon Drive. Paul says Robins attacked the driver with the hammer before he got back in his car and drove up Greenway Road to Heather Drive.

At Heather Drive, police said he is accused of cutting in front of an oncoming vehicle. When the driver stopped, police said he attacked the female drive before he got back in his car and drove to Foothill High School and hit a man with the hammer there. He fled as officers arrived.

Next, police said Robins drove to a Taco Bell restaurant on Horizon Drive and blocked a vehicle in the drive-thru lane and attacked that vehicle and driver.

He sped off and pulled into a nearby neighborhood, cut off another vehicle and got out, smashed the car with the hammer. The driver of that vehicle was not injured.

Around 9 p.m. Friday, Police said officers were in pursuit of Robins. When a K-9 officer confronted Robins on Arrowhead Canyon Drive, he surrendered.

Authorities are still trying to determine a motive, as none of the victims had any connection or relation to Robins.
