Six people indicted on murder charges after new evidence comes to light
SAN JOSE – The San Jose Police Department has announced the arrest of six suspects wanted in the stabbing death of 32-year-old Ryan Rousse. According to Officer Gina Tepoorten, “On Thursday, April 4, 2019, at about 6:48 p.m., San Jose police officers responded to the Dollar Tree Store at 1178 North Capitol Avenue in San Jose on a report of a person stabbed.”
The investigation into the stabbing of Rousse began when a 9-1-1 call was made after threats of violence and physical harm came as six suspects were chasing Rousse. However, after responding to the call, no further action was taken.
Then after a few more hours, another call regarding the same victim came in from the Dollar Tree located at 1178 N. Capitol Avenue in San Jose. Video footage of the incident began when multiple suspects attacked Rousse outside the location. Rousse was found inside the store with multiple stab wounds. He was taken to a local hospital where he was pounced deceased a few hours later.
The San Jose Police Department arrested four individuals within hours after their identification through surveillance footage provided by the Dollar Tree Store staff – 27-year-old Virginia Cervantes, 48-year-old Susan Sparr, 28-year-old Gabriel Rodriguez, and 25-year-old Kevin Tran. Two suspects were recently arrested after evidence also linked them to the brutal beating and stabbing death of the victim.
24-year-old Anthony DeLaTorre, and 19-year-old Dialo Terry were arrested on May 17, 2019, for PC 187, Murder. Both suspects are being held on a no-bail warrant and are expected to appear in Dept. 24 on May 28, 2019, at 1:30 pm for a plea hearing.
