Kidnapping/Domestic Battery

On May 3rd, 2020, at approximately 0330 hours, a female called 911 asking for help and then disconnected.   After approximately 15 minutes, Sparks dispatch was able to make contact with the victim, determine her location and receive further information. 


The victim reported that she had been beaten by her ex-boyfriend, at a residence in the 600 block of Field St and was held against her will for the last few days.   The victim called 911 because her ex-boyfriend was currently outside of her house and feared for her safety. 


The ex-boyfriend, Bryan Cuevas, was located driving in the area of the victim's residence and arrested on unrelated charges and booked at the Washoe County Jail.


Officers continued to investigate through the early morning, and a search warrant was served on Cuevas' residence.  Officers located several items of evidentiary value inside, which substantiated the victim's account of what occurred over the last few days.


Cuevas was booked on additional charges of Kidnapping, False Imprisonment, Domestic Battery – 3rd offense, Domestic Battery – Strangulation, Prohibited Person in Possession of a Firearm and felony drug related charges.


This investigation is on-going, and no other details will be released at this time.


If anyone has information related to this incident, please call the Sparks Police department or Secret Witness.


Thank you.
