Newton Detectives Investigates Possible Robbery

"Newton Detectives Investigates Possible Robbery"

 

Los Angeles: On August 19, 2001, at approximately 12:20 A.M., Newton officers responded to a radio call "Shots Fired Ambulance Enroute" at Vernon Avenue and Crocker Street. Upon arrival the officers observed a male Hispanic, 50 to 60 years old, lying on the sidewalk. The victim had sustained a head injury and was non-responsive. LAFD paramedics transported the victim to USCMC, where he was hospitalized in a comatose condition. There is no evidence the victim was shot.

The investigation revealed that two possible suspects were seen leaving the scene south on Crocker Street. Two male subjects fitting the description of the men leaving the scene were detained; however, they were released after being questioned by detectives.

The victim was carrying an empty wallet; he had no identification on his person and has not been identified.

It is not clear at the time of this press release if the victim was robbed or how he sustained his injury. The victim remains in critical condition.

Anyone with information that may assist in this investigation is urged to contact Newton Homicide Detectives R. Flores or M. Spillane at 323-846-6556. After hours contact Newton Patrol 323-846-6547.

This information was released by Detective J. D. Furr.

This press release was prepared by Public information Officer Eduardo Funes, Media Relations Section 213-485-3586.
