A Downey man was found dead in his residence following a home-invasion robbery Sunday morning, police said.
Neighbors described the resident as 59-year old a Jim Rudometkin, and a “very nice guy.”
Downey has arrested two suspects according to Sgt. Terry Goeckner of the Downey Police Department.
The invasion occurred in the 10300 block of Lesterford Avenue around 11:15 a.m.
One person in the area told ABC7 that she saw three people approach the house and knock on the front door. A man answered, then was forced back inside by the intruders, she said.
A third suspect is believed to be at large, based on witness accounts.
Police described the suspect at large as a male Asian or Pacific Islander in his early twenties, about 5 foot 8 and 160 pounds. He was wearing a button-down orange or red shirt, blue jeans and black and white tennis shoes, Goeckner said.
