Three men were arrested July 1 after Glendale police responded to reports of a homicide and multiple robberies in the same area.
Arrested were E’Marquis Beasley and Nathan Gamez, both 18, and a 15-year-old, whose name was not released. They were charged with first-degree murder, two counts of armed robbery and two counts of aggravated robbery in Glendale.
At approximately 5:47 a.m. June 29, Glendale police responded to reports of a suspect lying on the roadway near 51st Avenue and Bethany Home Road. The subject, 41-year-old Osmin Aristides Diaz, was fatally shot.
At the homicide scene, the police were informed of two robberies involving a silver Dodge truck. Police were told of another robbery near 5600 W. Glenn Drive. During that incident, a suspect pointed a gun at a victim and took his personal belongings.
The three took the victim’s cellphone, which showed they were in Phoenix.
The charges are related to the crimes that occurred within Glendale, police said. Phoenix Police Detectives have partnered with Glendale detectives to conduct their investigation into related crimes in their jurisdiction.
