Homicide Suspects Sought in Brutal Murder NR12055mjf

Los Angeles: On Dec. 27, 2011, the Robbery Special Section of LAPD’s Robbery-Homicide Division assumed investigative responsibilities for a homicide at a place of business in Los Angeles.

On Sept. 2, 2011, 75-year-old Min Yin was working at the Joy & Louis Corp, 1320 E. 18th Street, located in LAPD’s Newton Area.  At approximately 8 a.m., a male Hispanic (Suspect #1) arrived at the location to pick up an item that had been previously purchased on August 30, 2011. As suspect #1 exited the business, two additional suspects arrived and forced themselves inside. A struggle ensued, and one of the suspects stabbed Yin.  The suspects then left the location.

Yin was taken to LAC-USC Medical Center and admitted where he remained in critical condition until his death on Dec. 26 of last year.  Yin resided in the city of Arcadia.

Suspect #1 is described as a male Hispanic who stands about 6 feet tall and weighs around 180 pounds.  He has dark hair, brown eyes and appears to be in his late 40s.  Suspect #2 is described as a male Hispanic.  He stands approximately 5 feet 4 inches tall, is heavy set and has short dark hair (about a #2 clipper cut).n  He has small eyes, a dark complexion and a tattoo on the left side of his neck.  He is believed to be in his early 20’s.  Suspect #3 is also described as a male Hispanic who stands between 5 feet 5 inches and 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs about 200 pounds and has dark hair.  He is in his early- to mid-30s and was wearing a striped shirt.

On Jan. 25, 2012, with the assistance of 9th District Los Angeles City Councilwoman Jan Perry, the Los Angeles City Council approved a $50,000 reward offer for information leading to the identification, apprehension, and conviction of the person or persons responsible for killing Yin.

The suspects are considered armed and extremely dangerous. Video footage of Suspect #3 is available on www.lapdonline.com

Anyone with information about these crimes, suspects, or their vehicle is urged to contact LAPD Robbery-Homicide Detective Arroyo at 213-486-6840.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
