Financial Crimes Rape Suspect Wanted

LOS ANGELES POLICE DEPARTMENT
PRESS RELEASE
Thursday, November 19, 1998

WE NEED THE PUBLIC'S ASSISTANCE

WHAT:
Rape suspect sought

WHEN:
November 19, 1998
8:00 a.m.

WHERE:
Parker Center, Room 618
150 N. Los Angeles Street

WHY:
LAPD Detectives from Financial Crimes Division, Bunco Detail will be holding a press conference to seek the public's assistance in locating Richard Alan Minsky.

Minsky has a long record dating back to 1972, in the southland, of calling female victims on the telephone and impersonating a relative or close friend who has just been arrested for a "Hit & Run" accident. Minsky then plays the part of an attorney who suggests the victims meet with the "victim/witness" to the accident and offer money and/or sex to persuade the "victim/witness" not to go to the police.

Since June 26, 1998 six women have been identified as victims of Minsky's crimes.

Photographs of the suspect will be available at the press conference.

No additional information will be released prior to the Press Conference. Detective John Metcalf, Financial Crimes Division, Bunco Detail
(213) 485-3795.


For Release 2:00 pm PST
November 19, 1998
