San Francisco police have announced the arrest of four people in connection with a November homicide that occurred during the course of a home invasion robbery, Sgt. Danielle Newman said in a statement.

The homicide occurred Nov. 5 in the unit block of Yale Street, Newman said.

In that case, 49-year-old Hung Huynh was found dead in his home, although at the time police said he was not shot, they still suspected foul play and the medical examiner's office determined Huynh's death was a homicide. His death was reported by other residents of the home.

Two of the suspects in the crime were arrested last Wednesday and two were arrested Friday.

On Wednesday, 25-year-old Nestor Torres and 21-year-old Blanca Torres, both from Oakland, were arrested. Two days later, Clifton Thomas, 24, of San Francisco was arrested in Visitacion Valley. Later that night, police arrested Jasmine Ward, 34, also of San Francisco.

All four suspects were booked on homicide, burglary and robbery charges.
