A man, woman, and baby are dead after they were allegedly raped and killed by three men in the city of Las Vegas, police say.
Police said the victim was sexually assaulted and strangled while the three men tried to rape her and strangle her in a house in the 1800 block of East West Avenue.
The three men fled on foot, but the woman eventually found them and called 911.
The men were later apprehended.
Police did not immediately release any other information about the case.
“This is an extremely tragic event,” Lt.
Chris Cook said in a statement.
“The victim and her family have been grieving and their loss is felt throughout the community.”
The three men, who police say are all Latino, are accused of raping and killing the victim, a 23-year-old woman.
Police say the victim’s brother had called police to report that his sister had been raped and robbed.
Detectives found the victim in the backyard of the home on the night of her death, where the victim and the victim�s brother were sitting in a car parked in front of the house.
The victim and another man were in the car with her, and the man was allegedly sexually assaulted while she was tied up, police said.
She then died.
