LAS VEGAS (AP) - A 21-year-old man and his 22-year-old girlfriend are accused of attacking a Las Vegas school crossing guard who witnesses told police waved them to a stop in an Audi sedan as it sped through a school zone, according to an arrest report made public Tuesday.

Adam Patrick Kondrat and Sabrina J. Torres were arrested after an off-duty railroad police officer intervened in the Monday morning brawl near an elementary school and a middle school and several on-duty police arrived at the scene several miles southeast of the Las Vegas Strip, according to the report.

The off-duty officer, retired Las Vegas police Sgt. Robert Gibbs, received several stitches for a facial injury suffered during the scuffle, police said.

The crossing guard, identified as Dano McKay, was treated at a hospital for cuts and bruises, according to the report.

Kondrat and Torres were held Tuesday at the Clark County jail pending an initial court appearance. It wasn’t immediately clear if they had lawyers. Police said neither was available for interviews.

Torres was held on misdemeanor battery, conspiracy and false statement to an officer charges, according to jail records.

Kondrat was held on felony battery, mayhem and intimidating a public officer charges and several misdemeanor counts. Police said he fought with arresting officers and threatened to have friends kill the officers and their families.

A witness told police that McKay waved his hand-held red stop sign as Kondrat approached driving an Audi sedan toward a crosswalk on Maryland Parkway near Silverado Ranch Boulevard.

She told police that Kondrat emerged from the vehicle shouting, punching and kicking the crossing guard, who police said is more than 60 years old.
