Bail Increased In Alonso Perez Case

A judge in North Las Vegas set bail at $1.62 million for a Nevada homicide suspect who was re-arrested four days after authorities say he broke a set of handcuffs and escaped from a police office.

That brought the total bail for Alonso Perez to more than $1.7 million in cases in two cities.

Perez appeared by video on Thursday from the Clark County jail, where he's also being held on criminal charges in a Las Vegas shooting case.

Minutes earlier, a judge in Las Vegas set his bail at $100,000 pending a preliminary hearing on domestic battery, assault and shooting into a building charges.

In North Las Vegas, the 25-year-old Perez faces 10 felony charges including murder, shooting into a building, escape, auto theft, robbery and conspiracy.

He's accused of fatally shooting 31-year-old Mohammed Robinson on Aug. 27 outside a North Las Vegas fast-food restaurant, and of escaping from police custody Sept. 2.

He wasn't asked to enter a plea. His next court date is Sept. 22 in the Las Vegas case.
