Sexual Assault Suspect Captured

Los Angeles:  Today, West Valley Area detectives arrested 38-year old Jason Wade Foreman of Reseda for kidnap with the intent to commit a sexual assault on female adult victim who was 8-months pregnant at the time of the crime.

On February 22, 2010, the victim was walking in an alleyway in broad daylight when the suspect drove past her in a car.  The suspect parked his car, opened the trunk and grabbed the victim in a bear hug in an attempt to force her in the trunk of his car.  The victim was able to bite the suspect’s arm and break free.  The suspect fled the location in his car.  

Surveillance video showed the suspect’s vehicle and license plate.  The suspect was identified as Jason Wade Foreman, a resident of a Reseda sober living home. West Valley detective personnel produced and disseminated a crime alert flyer.   

Using the information from the crime alert flyer, West Valley Area officers familiarized themselves with a photo of the suspect and positioned themselves in the area of his last known residence.  On April 20, 2010, at about 8:15 a.m., the officers saw the suspect inside a car near the intersection of Saticoy Street and Balboa Boulevard.  A computer query revealed to the officers that their kidnap suspect was also in a stolen car.  Foreman was taken into custody without incident.  During the search of the car, numerous items were recovered including a handgun and burglary tools.

Foreman was booked for Kidnap for the intent of Sexual Assault.  His bail was set at $2,010,000.

Captain John Egan, Commanding Officer, West Valley Area said, “This is one of those cases where we combined high-tech gadgetry with good old fashioned gumshoe detective work and took a bad guy off the streets.”  He added, “We knew he was a predator, but the stolen car, the gun and burglary tools are indicators that he likely victimized people in a broad scope of crime.”

Anyone with any information about this crime or other crimes committed by Foreman is urged to call West Valley Area detectives at 818 374-7730.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 877-LAPD-24-7.   Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
