PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — Police announced Tuesday the arrest of two 19-year-old men in connection with the assault and robbery of an elderly man that took place near the Rose Bowl.
According to the Pasadena Police Department, Juan Antonio Medina, of Rowland Heights, and Dominick Tobiah Guzman, of Hacienda Heights, both turned themselves in to police on Monday.
Around 5 a.m. Friday, the victim walked on West Drive, north of Salvia Canyon Road, when four suspects assaulted him and stole his pouch that contained money and identification, officers explained.
The suspects fled the scene in a black 2003 or 2004 Honda Accord coupe with a sunroof to a nearby convenience store.
They then attempted to use the victim’s credit card, which was captured on surveillance video.
Other exercisers in the area located the victim on the pavement suffering from severe head trauma and called 911.
Paramedics transported him to a hospital, where he remained listed in critical condition since Saturday. An update on his condition remains unknown at this time.
Detectives identified Gabriel Anthony Mixco, 19, of Rowland Heights as one of two outstanding suspects.
“My message to Gabriel is to turn yourself in,” Pasadena Police Chief Phillip Sanchez said. “We know who you are.”
The fourth suspect was described as a Hispanic female teenager who has long brown hair. She was last seen wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt that had white lettering on the front of it.
Medina and Guzman are being held on just over $1 million at the Pasadena City Jail on suspicion of attempted murder and robbery charges.
The investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with information regarding the identities of the suspects is urged to contact the Pasadena Police Department at (626) 744-3953 or (626) 744-4525.
