LAS VEGAS (FOX5) –
A senior lady was severely beaten, shot and raped throughout a house intrusion in a historical Huntridge Park community.
Las Vegas Metro authorities stated they originally reacted to a report of a house invasion at the female’s house, near Maryland Parkway and Charleston Boulevard on July 1. The female, determined as Shevaun, was discovered and taken to University Medical Center where she was treated for severe injuries consisting of numerous swellings, lacerations and a gunshot wound to her face, police said.
Shevaun has lived in her home for more than 20 years. Sunday early morning she states she awakened and someone remained in her home.
“I looked towards my door and there was a male standing there in a hat naked,” she stated. “He said, ‘I’m going to rape you then I’m going to need to eliminate you.'”
Authorities stated Herbert Rogers, 53, was detained in connection to the criminal offense on July 2.
Rogers was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on several charges including attempted murder, sexual assault, battery, kidnapping and burglary.
Shevaun said she didn’t know the man who attacked her but stated she was told he lived at Huntridge Circle Park, which is near where she lives. Shevaun said over the previous few months more and more homeless individuals have actually been living there. When City pertains to kick them out in the evening, they enter into the close-by houses and communities.
“I asked him, ‘where do you live?'” He said, ‘I live here now’,” Shevaun said.
For more than an hour Rogers ransacked her house and horrified her. She said she tried to speak with him to keep him soothe when he requested cash she provided him $50.
“He had tattoos all over his arms and here he had a pretty girl’s face,” she stated indicating her upper arm. “I said to him, ‘Is that your girlfriend?’ She’s extremely quite.”
Shevaun states Rogers stood over her with a screw chauffeur and went room to space but would return to make sure she hadn’t moved. She said he told her several times he would kill her.
“I got up and headed toward the front door and after that he tackled me and said ‘get back on the sofa,'” she stated.
As Shevaun crawled back up on the sofa, she remembered she had a gun from her dad concealed.
“I had a 1948 [weapon] I have actually never shot it however I kept it in the couch. Then I pulled out that little weapon out he came running then he grabbed it from me,” she says.
Shevaun sat there as she states Rogers evacuated boxes of things including her wallet, bag, the gun and even her eye glasses. Then he started heading for the door and she hoped it would be over.
“He began opting for the door and I believed he was leaving, then he turned right around with that gun and went directly for my forehead. I have six stitches here and here,” she said as she pointed at her eyebrow and eyelid. “I was sitting and he shot me; it entered here and out here.”
Shevaun called police and spent three days in the healthcare facility. That’s where Metro Cops pertained to her and asked Shevaun to recognize who attacked her. She said she kept in mind the male’s tattoos and determined Herbert Rogers as her assailant.
Derek Stonebarger has actually been helping Shevaun as she recuperates. They both live near Huntridge Circle Park and stated it’s getting out of hand.
“He is going to hell!,” Stonebarger said. “Circle Park resembles a break space for wrongdoers. They get food, water, they have air-conditioning in the bathrooms and grass to lay on, then they come and rob our houses.”
People living and working near Huntridge Circle Park stated Rogers either lived or frequented the park practically every day prior to his arrest.
Shevaun is out of the health center and recovering. She said she’s not really sore and is doing all right. She said what’s the most difficult thing today is thinking of being all alone in her home once again. Shevaun stated she does not desire money or a GoFundMe. Rather, she desires individuals to contribute to the animal structure in her name or compose a letter to city board to inquire to do something about Huntridge Circle Park.
“I always understood she was a bad ass, but I indicate this is just a whole other level,” Stonebarger said. “I just hope I can live to be as fantastic an individual as she is.”
