Father of 3 Killed in Arcadia (Co.) Home Invasion Robbery - Public Help Sought to ID Suspect

Homicide detectives seeking the public's assistance in solving the murder of a Man who was a husband and father of three

Sheriff's Homicide detectives are continuing their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the shooting death of a man, who was a husband and father of 3 young children.

Shortly after 8:00pm Monday evening, the family was returning to their home on the 11000 block of Kristi Court, Arcadia (Unincorporated), when they were surprised by an armed light-skinned Hispanic man who had apparently been lying in wait.

As the family entered the garage of the residence, the man approached the family, pointed a hand gun at them and demanded money. Fearing for their safety, the victims gave the gunman the only money they had in their possession, their rent money.

Determined they had more money inside the house, the gunman demanded entry and ordered the family into their residence.
Once inside the residence, the gunman directed the mother and her two sons, ages 3 and 5 and 6yr old daughter into a bedroom. The victims were instructed to shut the door and not to exit the room.

The gunman then gave the father more commands for cash and shortly thereafter, several gunshots were heard by the family. They exited the room and found the male victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. The suspect left the residence prior to the family finding the victim.

The suspect was described as a 30 - 35 year old, light-skinned Hispanic man.

Sheriff's Homicide Detectives are seeking the public's assistance in solving this crime. Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.

If you prefer to provide information anonymously, you may call "Crime Stoppers" by dialing (800) 222-TIPS (8477), or texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or by using the website
