Crime Stoppers for week of 04-24-06

April 25, 2006 00:00


The Beaverton Police Department, in cooperation with Crime Stoppers, are asking for your help in identifying and locating suspects in a homicide.

On Saturday, March 25, 2006, at 10:20 p.m., 24-year-old Juan Rincon Cruz was shot to death and his friend was seriously wounded in the parking lot of the Center Plaza Apartment complex, located at Southwest Center Street and Southwest 125th Avenue in Beaverton.

The victim and his friend had just left an apartment in the complex and were walking through the parking lot when three suspects confronted them. The suspects shot at both Cruz and his friend, killing Cruz. The shooting may be gang-related.

The suspects were in a dark-colored SUV similar to a Chevrolet Suburban or Tahoe. The suspects are described as Hispanic males in their mid- to late-twenties, wearing baggy clothing.

Crime Stoppers is offering a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information, reported to Crime Stoppers, that leads to an arrest in this case, or any unsolved felony, and you remain anonymous. Call Crime Stoppers at (503) 823-HELP (4357).
