The Prince George's County Police Department's Homicide Unit arrested two suspects in connection with a homicide in Langley Park yesterday. The suspects are 23-year-old Sergio Elias Serrano of the 1400 block of Kanawha Street in Langley Park and 25-year-old Julio Cesar Jacome-Rosales also of the 1400 block of Kanawha Street.

On March 29, 2015, at about 4:15 am, patrol officers were called to the 1400 block of Kanawha Street for a welfare check. When they arrived, officers found a man inside an apartment building suffering from apparent stab wounds. He was pronounced dead on the scene. The victim’s name will be released once his family has been notified.

The preliminary investigation reveals the motive was robbery. Serrano was arrested shortly after the homicide in a nearby apartment building. Jacome-Rosales was arrested yesterday evening near his home. Both are charged with first and second degree murder and armed robbery. They are in custody at the Department of Corrections on a no bond status.
