Thieving trio attacks Best Buy employee

PALMDALE – Palmdale detectives are asking for the public’s help in locating three suspects who tried to steal laptops from a store and then attacked an employee who tried to stop them, authorities said.

The incident happened on June 5 at Best Buy, located at 39330 10th Street West in Palmdale, according to Palmdale Station Detective Rios.

Rios said the trio entered the store around 10:30 a.m. and each suspect grabbed two laptops.

“They each had brand new laptop computers in each hand, so they had six altogether,” Rios said.

The suspects were about to leave the store when they were confronted by an employee. The suspects threatened to kill that employee, and then attacked another employee who tried to stop them from fleeing, Rios said.

The employee suffered lacerations on his face from the attack.

Rios said the men were not able to take the merchandise with them during their escape.

“We want to know if anyone saw any suspicious vehicle behind the store because I think that’s where their car was parked at,” Rios said.

The three suspects are wanted for attempted robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.

Their images were taken from a surveillance video, which captured them entering the store.

If you recognize any of the three suspects or know where they may be hiding, contact Detective Rios at 661-272-2466.

    not saying what these guys did was right in any shape fashion or forum,but these racist comments are off the wall !! to all of the racist and stereotyped comments, these guys didn’t do anything that white folks haven’t done, and is still doing ! they have taken land, and lives for many and many of year, decades, and centuries !! so why are you guys looking, and pointing the finger at one race of people?? white folks rape, kill and steal every day, so what do you say about them,do they need to go back from where they come from? TALK TO ME !!!!!!

      So you are justifying what these guys did at Best Buy by saying “white people did it too…white people did it too”. Are you really that [removed] STUPID???? Nevermind, don’t answer! You ARE THAT [removed] STUPID!

      And while we’re at it…Don’t even try to use history as an excuse for your bad behavior! EVERY SINGLE RACE in history has “stolen” something or killed someone else because of differences — including BLACK PEOPLE!.

      Now since you want to talk about WHO is killing who and WHO is robbing and raping who, let’s pull up some statistics from the U.S. Department of Justice:

      The number of persons known to be involved in the 1,092 robberies, burglaries, and larcenies was 1,254. Broken down by race:

      496 – white
      557 – black

      That doesnt seem so bad until you realize that nationally, black people only make up 13% of the population compared to 81% white people. Once you realize that it takes on an entirely new and ugly dimension and
      shows that black people seem to be prone to commit crime.

      Blacks are seven times more likely than people of other races to commit murder, and eight times more likely to commit robbery.

      Blacks are three times more likely to use a hand gun, and twice more likely to use a knife.

      Blacks are 39 times more likely to commit a violent crime against whites then vice versa, and 136 times more likely to commit a robbery.

      Forty-five percent of black crime is against whites, 43 against other blacks, and 10 percent against Hispanic.

      Blacks commit 9 times more rapes than Whites.

      Yes, blacks commit more crime against whites (1.58 million crimes per year) than they do against other blacks (1.34 million crimes per year)! Its a virtual war of black criminals and white victims!

            June 26, 2012 at 6:56 pm

            Thanks for the condolences, I guess? :/

            Anyway, the reason the statistics are from 2011 is because that year is now over with. We wont have statistics for 2012 until probably February of 2013. Thats the way it goes and it makes sense if you think about it. You cant print statistics for a year when said year is still going, right?

          Dido, the comments are being made about the guys in the pictures above with the story. Sounds like you have a big racist chip on your shoulder. Did you just compare the 496 and the 557? You need to read the whole comment to see the stats. Maybe then you will understand why someone might make what appears to be a racist remark. Don’t misunderstand what I am saying, there is definetly racism in this valley, but statisics don’t lie. People do!

          It doesn’t matter that the statistics I posted were for a single year. You can look up any year and they will still be the same, if not worse. And as far as you referring to me or my post as “stupid”, all I have to do is try to read your post to know that I am dealing with someone who should probably be wearing a helmet and who probably has a lifelong pass to ride the Short Bus!

    Ya know, if more people dawned a side arm, I’d be willin to bet a negro hood rat would chose another victim to have that isn’t as dangerous. It’s not enough to just keep a firearm in your trunk, or take a safety course on how to pull the trigger. It has to be visible to be a threat to a negro hood rat. “Then everybody’s gonna shoot everybody!” Wrong… Everyone’s allergic to hot lead flyin around; myself included. But, I’d rather have a chance than not. Now, bring it Lib negros…..

    The problem here is too many apartment buildings being built. I am black and have lived here since 1969. We never had this much crime because we were a small community .the more people that move here the more crime you are going to have,not just here but any place in the USA. These guys are an embarrassment to me being black. But if you notice the who got arrested report the criminals are of various races . I think one of the problems is the government saying don’t whip your children. Young people in this day and age have no respect for themselves or others .the music with profanity,the clothing they sell for young girls,the saggy pants wear,people killing each other with out any feelings that it could happen to someone they love. I love living in the age of modern technology especially medical,but do we need to carry on a conversation while driving or in a store idid think that I would ever say this but I long for the good old days ,

    Where are Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson condemning these crimes done by black citizens of this country?

    Oh, they would have been there if there was a white security guard that shot these guys after being attacked though.

    Why doesn’t the black community step up and turn in their criminals instead of protecting them behind a cloak of racism.

    • ...
      June 23, 2012 at 6:18 pm

      If Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson got involved, they’d take the stance that the “racist white door greeter was racially profiling, and singled out the poor black man as a shoplifter just because he was black”.

        My point is the red shoes will show up again at some point and in combination with the pictures that we have now all seen, we, as community member may recognize him and his “band of brothers”.

    I posted this re: the walmart story but here is yet another example of my assertion…
    No, no problems here in the AV… No no problems in this town with young black men victimizing innocent people… the only problem here is a bunch or racist white folks picking on minorities for being on section 8…gimme a break people in this town sound racist because they are genuinely in fear because of an undesireable influx over the past decade of young black men who victimize our community… I challenge somebody to compile the arrest stats by race where the suspect was unknown to the victim ( ie robbery, assault, burglary, carjacking) the type of crimes that normal harworking people find themselves the victim of… people are in fear and not because they are racist, its because they are smart enough to identify a pattern!!!

      At the time the prison was built in Quartz Hill there was little crime, homes were occupied by owners and most shopping was done in ‘mom and pop’ stores. It wasn’t long before relatives and friends of the prison inmates became aware of the low rents in the apartment complexes and it was just a matter of time that more complexes were built to accomodate Section 8 renters. Original home owners moved out as drugs became a serious problem in the late 80’s, early 90’s. Just about every public phone booth at/near a business, or on a street corner, had someone with a pager ready to ‘do business’ It just seems to have gotten worse and worse. No point in me going on and on as nothing is going to change and people continue to say ‘well, that’s progress’ BS
