Two Men Arrested for Murder of Sylmar Man

 

Los Angeles: Hollywood detectives are seeking the public's help for information related to a murder that occurred on Monday, January 31, 2005. Two men were arrested after they returned to the scene of a murder while officers were investigating.

At about 7:10 p.m. North Hollywood patrol officers had discovered the body of Victorino Cruz, a 37-year-old resident of Sylmar, on Saticoy Street, just east of Laurel Canyon Boulevard. He had been hit on the head and later died at a local hospital.

Witnesses reported seeing two Hispanic men with Cruz. One suspect had a tattoo on his stomach and both men rode away on a bicycle.

Two men, who fit the witnesses' descriptions, walked up to the crime scene while officers were still conducting their investigation. Officers noticed bloodstains on both men's clothes.

Miguel Trujillo, 32 years old, and Byron Monroy, 39 years old were arrested after additional evidence linked them to the attack. Both men were booked at the Van Nuys jail for murder.

Anyone with information regarding this crime can contact North Hollywood Area Homicide Detectives Townsend or Kirkpatrick at 818-623-4045. On weekends or during off-hours, call the toll-free, 24-hour number at the Detective Information Desk, 1-877-LAWFULL (1-877-529-3855).
