Composite Sketches in Hollenbeck Assault/ Kidnapping Case NR12516cj

Los Angeles: On November 12, 2012 around 8 p.m., LAPD Hollenbeck Area officers responded to a “Screaming Woman Call” in El Sereno Park. Officers arrived and met with witnesses who stated they saw a man and a woman arguing in the park. It was reported that the male struck the victim in the face and then began to drag her by the hair into the dark hillside. The victim was screaming for help but the witnesses were unable to get close enough to help her. The Male Suspect and Victim disappeared into the darkness of the night up the hill. LAPD Officers immediately established a perimeter around the park area and began to search for the Victim and the Suspect

The young victim was described as a 13 to 15-year-old female, petite in size with a light complexion. The suspect was described as an 18 to 21-year-old male Hispanic. He stands at 6 feet tall and weighs around 200 lbs. He was described as “Clean Cut”

The search was bolstered immediately by our LAPD helicopter and K-9 resources. Officers searched the hillside all night until the terrain and darkness began to become an extreme hazard. The search was suspended around 4:00 am the following  morning and resumed as soon as the sun came up again. This morning we expanded our resources to include LAPD K-9 teams, Mounted Unit, and our SWAT Team who are specially trained for to operate under these extreme conditions.

Additional resources responded from Los Angeles Fire Department's Urban Search and Rescue Team, Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Search and Rescue team from Sierra Madre and Citizen Volunteers from the Community Emergency Mobile Patrol (CEMP). More than 200 emergency responders are actively searching for this young girl.
