On Wednesday, August 24, 2011 the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department released that last night, Los Angeles Sheriff’s Deputies arrested the suspect in the stabbing death of Jesse Garay, which occurred at the Metro Red Line station at 6250 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood on Friday evening.
The suspect, 33 year-old Gene Sim, a transient, was located in Buena Park and arrested without incident. Sim was booked for a Probation Violation and is being held without bail. Charges for the murder are pending. The booking photo is not available at this time.
“I congratulate Los Angeles County Sheriff Baca and his team on making an arrest in this case. I am confident they will conduct the case in a swift and responsible manner.
I want subway riders to know they are safe. Our transit system as well as our streets and neighborhoods are the safest they’ve been in a generation. Crime in Los Angeles is down to levels we have not seen since the Eisenhower Administration. Immediately following the incident Friday night, the Sheriff’s Department increased the number of deputies on the Red Line and additional deputies will be on patrol during the evening hours.
Though we cannot prevent every random act of violence, I will continue to work hand-in-hand with the Sheriff’s department and the MTA to keep public transit safe in Los Angeles. I have asked the MTA and the Sheriff’s Department to review security on the rail and bus system to ensure we maintain appropriate levels of security as we build the 21st Century transit network Angelenos deserve.” said Metro Board Chair and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.
The investigation is continuing.
