WANTED: Beating Suspects; SWAT & Police On The Hunt

SPOKANE, Wash. - Spokane Police and SWAT are looking for at least five different suspects in two separate locations. One location is in the area of 5th & Pittsburg, the other in the Napa & Sinto area.  Search warrants have been executed. The suspects are wanted in alleged violent assault that happened over a week ago where eight people violently beat a man up and took his jewelry valued at least $20,000. At least three people have already been arrested.

Here is the official Press Release:

Thursday evening, at 8pm, members of the Spokane Police Department and the Spokane County Sheriff's Office SWAT team assisted the Spokane Violent Crimes Gang Enforcement Team in the execution of two search warrants on two separate residences.

The investigators developed probable cause to arrest eight people for a variety of crimes; 1st degree Robbery, 1st degree Assault, Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Conspiracy to Commit 1st degree Robbery, Conspiracy to Commit 1st degree Assault, Riot and 1st degree Trafficking in Stolen Property.

The following individuals have been arrested: Monica R. Sanders (11/06/77), Tasha M. Tensley (10/17/83), and Roderick J. Thomas (12/8/88). Five suspects are outstanding, but members of the SVCGET are actively searching for them.

On August 18, 2010, Spokane Police officers responded to a fight in the alley behind 1820 East 5th Avenue. They found a victim, bleeding from the head and in extreme pain. The victim told officers he had been "jumped" by numerous people who stole the jewelry from around his neck, his jeans were stripped off his body and his vehicle was stolen.

Upon further investigation, officers discovered the victim was friends with one of the suspects. The two agreed to make rap music video together. The victim decided to wear some of his jewelry in the video that was rather expensive. The suspects were aware of the value of the victim's jewelry.

After a large group met at a Spokane Valley night club, the party returned to a home at 1800 East 5th Ave. While the victim was sitting in his vehicle, a black male jumped into the passenger side seat and a female entered the driver's side rear door, directly behind the victim. The victim grew concerned and tried to start the car and leave. The black male got out, walked around to the driver's door, opened it and tried to grab the victim by the shirt. That suspect then struck the victim several times in the head with a hand gun and pulled the victim out of the car.

As the victim lie on the ground, the suspect and Monica Sanders began attacking him. He tried to get away by hiding underneath a nearby car, but was shot with a Taser or stun gun by Monica Sanders and Tasha Tensley. Another black male entered the fight and struck the victim while he was underneath the car. Meanwhile, his wallet and jewelry was forcibly removed from his neck, wrist and fingers. His jeans were pulled off, which had $350.00 cash in the pocket. The victim lists the value of the jewelry taken to be roughly $20,000 and the value of items taken from inside his vehicle was roughly $1500.00.
