The crime occurred this morning shortly after 3:00 a.m. in the 200 block of El Dorado Street in Arcadia.

The second suspect was described as a male, Hispanic, also 25-30 years old, 6'00"/200 lbs., with black hair. The suspects drove away eastbound on El Dorado in a copper colored, 2-door, Honda Accord.
This case is a good reminder for everyone to "check your mirrors" and to be aware of your surroundings at all times. If you happen to see, or suspect, someone is following you, call 9-1-1 and report what is happening to law enforcement. Continue driving until told otherwise by a Dispatcher. If you stop, make sure the location is well lighted and very public, like an open convenience store, open gas station, or preferably, a local police or sheriff's station.
