  • 'PURE EVIL': 4 stabbed to death in California robbery spree

(Hannah Fry and Louis Sahagun, Los Angeles Times) Investigators are trying to determine what led a man to embark on a deadly rampage across two Orange County cities on Wednesday, fatally stabbing four people and wounding two others.

Two Garden Grove men and two Santa Ana men were killed, but their names were not immediately released.

The crime spree began when Castaneda stabbed two roommates to death on Wednesday afternoon outside the Garden Grove apartment complex where he lived, police said.

As officers prepared to respond to the apartment burglary, another call came in about 20 minutes later about a robbery at a bakery in Garden Grove in which an unknown amount of cash was taken.

The suspect, Zachary Castaneda, was taken into custody on Wednesday evening outside of a 7-Eleven convenience store in Santa Ana, California, moments after stabbing to death a security guard there, police said. Both suffered serious injuries, with the man's nose nearly severed, Whitney said. The victim had apparently been dead for about 24 hours, he said. She is expected to survive.

"We have video showing him attacking these people and conducting these murders", Whitney concluded. One died on a balcony and another died at a hospital, he said. The motive in at least some of the attacks was believed to be robbery, but police are still investigating, he said.

Whitney stressed, however, "There was no indication this was a hate crime".

Beltran then ran out of the shop and yelled she was being robbed before taking refuge in a nearby dental office, she said.

Court records show his wife, Yessica Rodriguez, sought a restraining order last year after she said Castaneda threw a beer can at her 16-year-old daughter. He took all the money and fled.

"I think I was very lucky because he thought I was a customer, not the owner", she said.

He also allegedly robbed an insurance business, where an employee was stabbed several times, as well as a cheque-cashing business. Inside, he attacked a 54-year-old employee, confronting her with what was described as a machete-style knife, Whitney said.

The woman "was very fearless", Whitney said. "She fought as best as she could against this suspect and sustained multiple stab wounds".

An alarm company saw the robbery on a live television feed and called police.

"Again, multiple scenes going on at the same time", Whitney said.

The police then got another call regarding a robbery at a check-cashing business at 12845 Harbor Blvd.

Around 18:00 PST, the suspect allegedly drove to a gas station where he attacked a man pumping gas, almost severing the victim's nose off his face. Bystanders rushed to help the man, he said.

He also killed one person during a robbery at a Subway restaurant and a male security guard at a 7-Eleven - both in Santa Ana, police said.

The man had followed the guard into the store and stabbed him several times during a confrontation, Whitney said. He was carrying a knife and handgun as he exited, and dropped both weapons before he was arrested by police.

Garden Grove Police Chief Tom DaRé said that without the work of the police and the undercover detectives who spotted the suspect's auto at the 7-Eleven, more people would have been attacked or killed in the "chaotic event".
