On May 17, 2011, shortly after 7:00 a.m., Long Beach Police responded to the 600 block of Cerritos Avenue to assist Long Beach Fire Department paramedics who were called to the area regarding a man found unconscious in a driveway with blood on his face. The victim, identified as 32-year old Steven Brown of Long Beach, was rushed to a local hospital and was initially listed in extremely critical condition.
Through their investigation, officers learned the victim was violently assaulted, and due to the seriousness of the victim’s condition, Homicide detectives were called to the scene. Officers processing the scene were led to a nearby residence where they determined the assault had taken place. They were able to identify 35-year-old Emmanuel Walker of Long Beach as one of two suspects responsible for the assault, and he was taken into custody the same day. On Friday, May 19, 2011, detectives arrested 33-year-old Norvin Dizadare of Long Beach for his role in the assault. Detectives believe Suspects Walker and Dizadare assaulted and robbed the victim before dragging him away from the house to conceal their involvement.
On Saturday, May 21, 2011, at approximately 5:00 p.m., Victim Brown was pronounced deceased as a result of injuries sustained in the May 17th assault.
The victim and suspects were known to one another and had been at a social event prior to the assault, which occurred as a result of a dispute. Dizadare and Walker have been booked for murder, robbery, and kidnapping, and are being held at the Long Beach City Jail. The case will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and both suspects are expected to be arraigned today, Monday, May 23, 2011.
Anyone with information regarding the assault is asked to contact Long Beach Police Homicide Detectives Mark McGuire and Hugo Cortes at (562) 570-7244.
