LAS VEGAS — Police say a security guard at a Las Vegas Strip hotel has been arrested in connection with a sexual assault that happened at the property on Monday.

Authorities say 39-year-old Robert Laws was arrested Wednesday at the hotel, which police would not identify.

Police say Laws faces two counts of sexual assault and one count of kidnapping. He is jailed without bail at the Clark County Detention Center.

Jail logs show Laws has a court hearing scheduled for Friday. Records do not list a defense attorney who could comment on his behalf.
