Attempted Murder And Armed Robbery Arrest

On 7/19/08, Detectives from the Sparks Police Department were called to investigate a robbery and shooting that occurred at Paul’s Market at 1550 Vance Way. The victims/owners of the store were working inside when two males entered the store and demanded money.

One of the suspects produced a knife while the other suspect went behind the counter to try and access the cash drawer. The victims, Amrik and Rachpal Singh, attempted to fight back while they were being robbed. Rachpal was stabbed during the course of the struggle with one of the suspects.

While Rachpal was fighting with one of the suspects, his brother Amrik came out from the rear of the store when he heard the fight. At that time, the other suspect jumped the counter and produced a handgun and proceeded to shoot Amrik in the abdomen and continued trying to shoot Amrik as both suspects fled from the store. After a lengthy investigation by Sparks Police Detectives, the following suspects were located and subsequently arrested on the listed charges:

Ropati, Ray George, 26 year old Sparks resident, arrested for:
