Attempt Kidnapping of a 13- year-old girl NR12173cl

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles Police Department Hollenbeck Sex Crimes Detectives are asking the public’s help to identify and locate the suspect responsible for the attempt kidnap of a 13-year-old girl in the Hollenbeck Area.

On Tuesday, April 10, 2012, around 2 p.m., a 13-year-old girl was walking home from Hollenbeck Middle School in the 1900 block of East 4th Street when she was stopped by the suspect.  The suspect blocked the victim’s path and asked her, “What’s your name? Do you need a job? How old are you? You’re beautiful. I love your lips.”

The victim briefly spoke to the Suspect, and she walked away. The suspect got into his car, which was parked on the northeast corner of 4th Street and State Street. As the victim continued eastbound on 4th Street toward Boyle Avenue, the suspect drove alongside the victim and continued to ask her if she needed a ride.  After a few seconds, the suspect drove past the victim and turned North onto Pecan Street.

When the victim reached Pecan Street, she saw the suspect’s car parked on the Northwest curb of Pecan Street about forty feet north of 4th street, near the 101 freeway entrance.  The suspect waved cash and yelled, “Here, you want money?” to the victim as she crossed Pecan.  The victim yelled back ,“Just leave me alone!” The suspect then drove up to the victim, got out of the car and grabbed the victim by the shoulders and attempted to force her into the back seat of the car. The victim fought off the suspect, and ran into a nearby market for help.

The victim sustained bruises to her back shoulder and legs.

The suspect is described as a White or Hispanic, 35 to 45 year-old male, stands about 5 feet 9 inches tall, short cut hair, pock marked face and a tattoo of possibly a dragon or snake on his left forearm. The Suspect was wearing a blue short-sleeve dress shirt, black pants and black dress shoes.

The suspect’s car is described as a black, four door sedan “with a peace symbol” on the hood, possibly a Mercedes.

Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call Detective David Meza Hollenbeck Sex Crimes 323-342-8993. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).
