Brutal Beating and Robbery of Teenage Girl Captured on Surveillance Camera NR12017SF

Los Angeles:  An 18-year-old woman was beaten then robbed after walking into the lobby of her apartment building on Tuesday night.  Detectives investigating the attack are asking for the public’s help to identify and locate the aggressive and dangerous suspect.

On January 8, 2012, around 10:10 p.m., a young woman returning to her apartment in the area of Westmoreland and 11th Street was attacked in the lobby of her apartment building.  The suspect approached the victim from behind, put his arm around her neck and tried to grab her cell phone.  When the victim resisted, the suspect slammed her to the ground and punched her several times in the face and the stomach.  The suspect attempted to take her purse, but instead took her cell phone. As the suspect began walking toward the front door, the victim ran after him and tried to take her phone back.  The suspect turned around, punched the victim several more times in her face then walked out the lobby door.

The suspect is described as a male Hispanic, between 25-35-years-old, he stands about 5-5” tall and weighs approximately 180-200 pounds.  During the incident, he was seen wearing jean pants, a white t-shirt with black printing on the front and back of the shirt and black shoes.

Detectives from Olympic Division are asking for the public’s help to identify and locate the suspect wanted for attacking the young victim.  The LAPD would like to remind the community that if you come in contact with the suspect to immediately call 9-1-1, as he should be considered aggressive and dangerous.

Anyone with information about this brutal attack is asked to call Olympic Robbery Detective’s at 213-382-9460.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (1-877-523-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers 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.
