LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas police are trying to determine the identity of a suspect who was arrested after pointing a gun at people on the Strip.

Police are asking for anyone with information about the suspect’s identity or about anyone who may know him.

He is being held as John Doe.

The suspect is accused of walking in and out of traffic on the busy Strip on Friday night while waving a gun.

They were taken to a hospital and released.

The suspect is known as someone who frequently sells goods to tourists.
