Trio Arrested For Torture and Attempted Murder Of Nude Homeless Man
FONTANA – The SBSD arrested a trio of suspects in a torture and attempted murder incident. SBSD Deputies’ quick response to a call about persons in an abandoned residence found a nude man covered in white paint, shrieking for help. Three individuals tortured him and left the residence.
The trio bound the homeless man’s hands with rope. He’d suffered traumatic facial and head injuries.
Subsequently, investigators determined that the suspects kidnapped the victim and and took him to the residence. They beat him repeatedly with multiple blunt-force objects. They also “submerged him in a tub of water, preventing him from breathing.”
Responders took the anonymous homeless man to Arrowhead Regional Medical Center for treatment of his injuries and further examination.
Law enforcement later arrested the three suspects at the abandoned residence. It is located on the 8800 block of Catawba Avenue near Ceres Avenue.
Consequently, they booked into the West Valley Detention Center for attempted murder, kidnapping, torture, and false imprisonment.
Two other suspects in this case remain on the loose. the SBSD says, “If You See Something, Say Something.”
