The collision happened on March 24th at about 1 a.m. in the 1100 block of Stanley Avenue.

The suspect was driving a green Dodge pick-up when he slammed into a parked car, according to witnesses.

One of the witnesses, a man named Yon Chreng, 27, of Long Beach, attempted to flag down the driver to stop him from driving away. Then, the driver aimed his car at Chreng and struck him. The vehicle dragged him for a block, before hitting three other parked vehicles and fleeing on foot.

Chreng was pronounced dead at the scene.

Since then, detectives have identified the suspect in the crash as Francisco Javier Saucedo, 22. He is described as a Hispanic male, about 5’6” tall and weighing 160 pounds. His last known residence was Gardena, though he has ties to the Hawthorne area as well.

A warrant for his arrest was issued on April 13.
