Marcos Vincente Arenas, a 15 year old Las Vegas teen, was run over and killed by a SUV while trying to prevent thieves from stealing his iPad, reports the Las Vegas Sun.

Investigators determined Arenas was walking on the south side of Charleston Boulevard carrying the iPad when a white vehicle, believed to be a Ford Explorer or Expedition manufactured between 2008 and 2010, stopped and a man exited the passenger side of the vehicle.

The man attempted to steal the iPad and started to drag the teen, who was trying to hold on to the device, police said. Arenas was dragged to the vehicle, and the suspect got back into the SUV with the teen still grasping at the tablet or somehow being held by the suspect, according to a Metro news release.


As the driver fled the scene, Arenas reportedly fell and was struck by the vehicle. He died at University Medical Center from his injuries.

The suspect who grabbed the iPad was described as a white male in his late 20s, about 6 feet tall and weighing 180-200 pounds. He has short slicked back blonde hair which was shaved on the sides and a neatly trimmed beard. At the time he was wearing blue jeans and a white tank top.

The driver of the vehicle was a black male in his mid 20s, medium build, with a fade haircut. He may have tattoos on both arms and was last seen wearing a black shirt and possibly a long chain with a pendant.

Below are photos of what Metro Police describe as a "person of interest and a vehicle of interest" in the case.

“There has got to be people who saw stuff, and we want those people to come forward,” Metro spokesman Bill Cassell said.

Bryan: you're right about God being forgiving but not until they take ownership of their actions. That would be coming forward here on earth and recognizing Jesus died for the sins committed. Something tells me that's not likely so it will be the standard way of being caught, and you bet that they will be caught. Meantime a family now deals with a tragedy that's unbelievably horrible

Walking around with an iPad or iPhone is a big risk.Its a good source of money for theives.Here at my local mall I would expect to see anywhere from 6-8 people with iPads around the food court area which is highly crowded.This is not intelligent.It is shameful that life was lost over a iPad.The people responsible will be caught.God will forgive you.I'll be preying for the family of the deceased.
