Los Angeles:
Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck announces the arrest of four suspects in connection with the Northridge murders that occurred this past Sunday morning.

On Tuesday, December 4, 2012, Los Angeles Police Chief Charlie Beck spoke at a news conference and announced that his Robbery Homicide Division investigators had arrested four suspects who have been tied to the murders of four people in Northridge this past Sunday, December 2, 2012.

Sunday morning around 4:25 a.m. Devonshire Division patrol units responded to a 911 emergency call of a shooting at 17441 Devonshire Street in Northridge.  The responding officers discovered four victims of a shooting laying on a walkway near the side of the residence.  It has been determined that the victims died as a result of gunshot wounds.  

Chief Beck explained that his “investigators have worked around the clock since the murders and were able to develop information and leads that pointed them in the direction of four individuals implicated in the heinous crime that took the lives of the four victims.”   

The investigation revealed that the victims had been visiting friends at that residence when they were confronted and fatally shot by the suspects.  Robbery Homicide investigators developed information that the suspects fled to Las Vegas, Nevada.  Through the investigative efforts of Robbery Homicide Division, detectives and the Las Vegas Safe Streets Criminal Apprehension Team, which is comprised of the Henderson Police Department, Las Vegas Metro Police Department and the FBI, were of great assistance and helped investigators as they zeroed in on the suspect’s location.  The four suspects were located at the Silverton Hotel and Casino where they were taken into custody without incident on Monday afternoon, December 3rd, around 2:00 p.m.

The investigation involved 16 Robbery Homicide detectives who have worked tirelessly for 43 hours in order to track down and take these suspects into custody.  The Henderson Nevada Police Department Crime Scene Investigations provided significant assistance in processing the crime scenes in Las Vegas and their support is greatly appreciated.  Detectives are working closely with the L.A. County District Attorney’s Office, Major Crimes Division to return the suspects to California.

The following suspects have been arrested and booked in connection with these tragic crimes: Ka Pasasouk, 31 of Los Angeles was arrested for Murder (187 PC), Howard Alcantara, 30 of Glendale was arrested and booked for Robbery and Aiding a Felon (211/32 PC), Donna Rabulan, 30 of Los Angeles was arrested for Aiding a Felon (32 PC), and Christina Neal, 31 of Los Angeles also arrested for Aiding a Felon (32 PC).  All four suspects will be held in Nevada pending extradition proceedings.

Investigators continue to work on the case and much work is yet to be done.  Investigators are still seeking information on this case and ask that anyone who may have information about these murders or the suspects who have been arrested, to contact Robbery Homicide Division at 213-486-6850.
