New Arrest in Man's Beating Death at Oceanside Park

On Feb. 16, an Oceaside resident walking his dog at Buddy Todd Park discovered the beaten body of Moustafa Gordon lying in the park

A third person is under arrest, accused of the beating death of a man at a park in Oceanside earlier this year, police confirmed Thursday.

Investigators acting on a tip arrested Angelo Doehing just before noon in a hotel lobby in the Valencia area, north of Los Angeles.

On Feb. 16, Oceanside resident Moustafa Gordon, 24, was found beaten to death at Buddy Todd Park in the 2800 block of Mesa Drive. He was found at the northeastern edge of the park and had suffered deadly blunt force trauma to his face.

Lt. Leonard Cosby called the beating death “an attack of great severity” and said it is likely Gordon knew his assailant or assailants.

David Ioane, 25, and Chris Augafa, 24, both of Oceanside, were already arrested, police said.

Two other men - Raider Seau, 33; and  William Epenesa, 45 - are still sought in the investigation.
