LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Las Vegas Metro Police have made three additional arrests that involve alleged abuses at an unlicensed group home on the Valley's southeast side

Calvin Leslie, Mary Jefferson and Devon Floyd were all taken into custody on arrest warrants for multiple felonies.

Back in September, 54 year old Bruce Wycoff was arrested after an investigation yielded proof of unsanitary conditions and abuse against residents living at the home on Parkdale.Avenue.

Through the course of the investigation, detectives learned that employees of the group home were exploiting victims who were mentally handicapped, dependable or homeless and qualified for SSI or other benefits.

The victims were promised their medical needs, health and food would be taken care of at the group home. It was reported the facility had unhealthful or unsanitary conditions and had no operational bathrooms.

The facility was employing several persons who had violent criminal backgrounds and were reportedly seen armed with firearms. Victims were being intimidated and told not to contact law enforcement.

Leslie, Jefferson and Floyd were booked into the Clark County Detention Center on multiple felonies involving elder abuse.
