Sexual Assault Suspect Arrested

Los Angeles: Northeast Sex Crime Detectives arrested a sexual assault suspect believed to be responsible for an attack that had occurred a month ago.

On July 26, 2008, at around 5:30 a.m., a 23-year old woman was kidnapped from a bus stop at the intersection of Colorado and Eagle Rock Boulevards.  The suspect forced the woman into his car and drove her to a
secluded area.  The suspect then sexually assaulted the victim, took her property, and drove off.

The suspect was described as a Hispanic, 18 to 22 years of age, with a mustache.  He stands 5’ 7” to 5’ 8”, and weighs approximately 140 lbs.  The suspect’s car was a dark blue, 4-door, 2006-2008 Honda Civic.

Northeast Detectives disseminated a composite drawing of the suspect along with his description and the vehicle information on August 7, 2008.  

On August, 2008, two Northeast Area patrol officers observed a vehicle, which matched the description of the vehicle used by the suspect on the day of the crime.  The owner of the vehicle was subsequently identified and interviewed regarding this matter.  During the interview, Northeast Detectives asked the suspect to provide a DNA sample.  The suspect agreed and a sample was collected.  A DNA comparison was made, resulting in a match.  
                   
On Thursday, August 28, 2008, Northeast Detectives along with personnel from the Northeast Criminal Apprehension Team arrested the suspect at his work location.  The suspect’s vehicle was also recovered and is being held as evidence.  

The suspect has been identified as 25-year old Sergio Hernandez Linares, a Los Angeles resident.  He was booked for 261 P.C. Rape.  His bail was set at $1,100,000.
