Wanted Wednesdays! Hammer Attack Suspect Sought

*$15K REWARD* East Los Angeles Sheriff's Station detectives still seeking public’s help in locating “Hammer” Suspect for 2016 assaults

Since early 2016, East Los Angeles Station Detectives have been actively working on solving two Assault with Deadly Weapon investigations. The cases involve a single suspect striking two victims on two separate occasions without warning with a hammer-type weapon. Here is recap of the incidents:

The first assault occurred on Friday, March 25, 2016 in the 1400 block of South Bonnie Beach Place, unincorporated Los Angeles. The suspect walked up to the elderly male and, without any warning or provocation, struck him with a hammer type weapon. When the victim fell to the ground the suspect kicked the victim. The suspect then fled southbound Bonnie Beach Place and out of view. The suspect is described as a male Hispanic, 40 to 45 years old, between 5’10 and 6’00 tall, heavy set, wearing a straw hat and blue wind breaker-type jacket.

The second assault took place on the same date few hours later, in the 4400 block of Triggs Street, unincorporated Los Angeles. In this incident, the victim was standing in front of a residence when without warning or provocation the suspect attacked a female adult. The suspect struck the victim with a hammer-like weapon several times about the head. The woman immediately fell to the ground and fell unconscious. The suspect fled in an unknown direction. Witnesses in this incident describe the suspect as a male in his mid-forties, approximately 240 pounds, 6’00 tall, wearing a black jacket and black pants.

It has been over two years since the hammer assaults, and East Los Angeles Station detectives are continuing their search of this wanted suspect. The $15,000 reward is still active for information, which helps detectives identify the suspect.
