Suspect in Sexual Assault Arrested

Los Angeles: Detectives have announced the arrest of a suspect in the sexual assault of an 8-year-old boy in Van Nuys this past June.

On Saturday, August 4, 2007, at around 4:20 p.m., Amilcar Duran, 26, of North Hollywood, was arrested for the sexual assault of a young boy that occurred on June 13, 2007, as the boy walked home from school.

Several days after the assault the victim recognized the suspect while he was in a market near Victory Boulevard and Whitsett Avenue in North Hollywood. The police were notified but the suspect had left the location before they arrived.

Based on the victim's statements, police searched the stores surveillance video and were able to capture an image of the suspect and his vehicle. The victim identified the image as the same suspect that assaulted him.

On August 4, 2007, security personnel at the market observed a vehicle and driver leaving the market parking lot, who matched the composite drawing and video images of the suspect's vehicle. The police were again notified and this time Duran was taken into custody without incident.

He was arrested for kidnapping and sexual assault and is being held on $1,000,000.00 bail. Detectives are awaiting DNA results to confirm Duran's involvement in this crime.

Anyone with information is requested to contact Robbery Homicide Detectives John Wong or Jesse Alvarado at 213-485-2921. On weekends or during off-hours call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
