Armed Robbery on Galletti Way

Posted: Updated:

Sparks police are looking for two men who robbed a man on Galletti Way late last night.

At around 10:15 last night officers were called to the 400 block of Galletti, where the victim reported being robbed by two men. Police say the victim was driving his motorcycle near the entrance to Fisherman's park, when he saw a person lying near the roadway. When he stopped to check and see if that person was okay, he was robbed by two men.

The first subject is described as a Hispanic man in his early 30s, roughly 6 feet tall and weighing between 170 and 180 lbs, with a scruffy beard. He was armed with a handgun, possibly a revolver.

The second suspect is described as a Hispanic man in his late 30s around 5'7" tall with a heavy set build, and bushy, unkempt hair.

Both men were wearing dark, dirty clothing at the time of the robbery.

Anyone with any information on this case is asked to contact Sparks Police Detectives at 353-2225 or Secret Witness at 322-4900.
