Man stabbed to death during birthday party at Las Vegas resort

Updated October 4, 2020 - 8:02 pm

Police are investigating the fatal stabbing of a man at a south Las Vegas timeshare resort.

At approximately 11:30 a.m. Sunday, police responded to a report of a man who had been stabbed in a hallway of the resort in the 9900 block of Las Vegas Boulevard South, according to Metropolitan Police Department homicide Lt. Ray Spencer. Officers found a man in his 30s suffering from stab wounds in the ninth-floor hallway.

Authorities attempted to render aid, but the man was deceased at the scene.

During a briefing Sunday, police said the investigation indicated the victim went with a woman to The Grandview at Las Vegas to meet a group of people celebrating a birthday in one of the rooms. When they knocked on the door, an altercation began between the woman and a different man inside the timeshare.

“That female was punched in the face and knocked down. At that point a group of men and women came out from the room and chased the victim down the hallway where he was stabbed in the hallway and collapsed,” Spencer said.

In a press release Monday, police updated a detail in the investigation, saying the victim had accompanied the woman to the Grandview to assist her in retrieving property.

Police are looking for up to eight suspects who were seen fleeing from the scene in a vehicle, Spencer said Sunday.

Metro encourages anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or to email police at homicide@lvmpd.com.

The death marks the 98th homicide investigated by Metro this year, according to records maintained by the Review-Journal.
