At approximately 4 a.m. Feb.21, 2018 search warrants were served at residences in the 800 block of Vincent Avenue in Azusa, 3800 block of Muirfield Street in El Monte, 15600 block of Amar Road and 900 block of Del Valle Avenue in La Puente and 1700 block of E Natalie Avenue in West Covina. The warrants were served as part of an armed robbery and assault investigation.
Initially, the investigation began Feb.17, 2018 in the city of Chino when officers responded to a large fight reported at a house party in the 3900 block of Yellowstone Circle. While responding, dispatch received a second call from a male victim at the same location reporting an armed robbery involving an unknown black male suspect who stole the victim's jewelry and fired one shot from a handgun. Officers were unable to contact the victim to obtain further details.
Several hours after the above calls for service and incident, an 18-year-old male victim reported being robbed at gunpoint for jewelry by two unknown black male suspects at the same location (3900 block of Yellowstone Circle).
The following day, Feb. 18 at approximately 9:15 a.m. officers responded to Chino Valley Medical Center where a male victim suffered injuries related to a pistol whipping. During the investigation, it was discovered that the 17-year-old male victim was also at the party on Yellowstone Circle when he was attacked, pistol-whipped, robbed and shot. The victim was not struck by the gunfire. During the attack, another 15-year-old male was assaulted as he attempted to help the victim.
Through the ongoing investigation and service of the search warrants, detectives identified and contacted several subjects who were involved. Detectives also located evidence relating to the robbery series.
Deangelo Rabon - age 20 of La Puente was booked for attempted murder and robbery; Kevin Devon Thomas - age 18 of Azusa, and Tariq Rayshawn Thompson - age 19 of West Covina were booked for robbery and assault. All three suspects were booked at the West Valley Detention Center.
