Kidnap/Carjacking Suspect Learns Judo The Hard Way

"Kidnap/Carjacking Suspect Learns Judo The Hard Way"

 

Los Angeles: On August 18, 2002 at approximately 1:30 p.m., Hollywood Area officers responded to a radio call of a "Carjack/Kidnap just occurred with a woman and a child in the vehicle" from 1146 North Gordon Avenue. Hollywood Area officers responded and began to attempt to locate the suspect and set up a command post. The report of a child being in the vehicle proved to be incorrect.

The male victim had been struck several times and pulled from the vehicle. The female victim is a twenty three year old resident of Los Angeles. She was kidnapped in the carjacked vehicle and driven around the Hollywood area by the suspect. The suspect attempted to rob the female victim by force after kidnapping her from the location. When the suspect was unsuccessful, he forced her from the vehicle while it was still moving. She was treated by Los Angeles Fire Department personnel for her injuries as a result of being forced out of the moving vehicle. Local citizens in the area attempted to follow the suspect in their vehicles but lost him in the area of Hollywood Boulevard and Gower Street.

Following the original carjacking/kidnap, the suspect drove to the area of Highland Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard where he attempted a second carjacking. The vehicle contained members of the Florida International University Judo Team. The team members used their judo skills and immediately subdued the suspect and detained him until officers arrived.

The suspect has been identified as twenty year old Tyrone Jermaine Hogan of Los Angeles. He has been booked on charges of Kidnapping for Carjacking, Kidnapping for Robbery, Carjacking and Attempted Carjacking and is being held on $1,200,000.00 at Parker Center Jail.

This press release was prepared by Officer Don Cox, Media Relations Section, 213 485-3586.
