Sexual Assault Suspect Arrested NR09499bb

Los Angeles: Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) detectives announce the arrest of a sexual assault suspect 28-year-old Salvador Jesse Solis of Los Angeles.

On October 15, 2009, at around 12:30 p.m., a female victim was walking southbound on Soto Street from Alcazar Street when Solis walked alongside the victim and attempted to engage her in a conversation.  The victim told Solis to leave her alone, but he continued following her until they arrived in front of Hazard Park.  He then pulled the victim into the park’s female restroom and sexually assaulted her.  After the alleged assault, Solis ran from the restroom and the victim ran from the park.  The victim called  police via her cell phone and police officers located her at Fairmont Street and Soto Street.  

The victim provided a description of the suspect-Solis and a crime broadcast was issued over the radio frequency.  The suspect was described as a male Hispanic with a ‘Nike swoosh’ symbol tattooed on the right side of his head.  Police officers located and arrested the suspect at Huntington Drive South and Fithian Avenue.  The suspect was identified as 28-year old Salvador Jesse Solis.  

During the investigation, Detectives learned of a previously reported attempted sexual assault of a female victim at 5150 Huntington Drive, at about 10:00 a.m. and the suspect’s description was similar to Solis’ appearance.  A witness positively identified Solis as the person responsible for the attempted sexual assault at 5150 Huntington Drive.  

On October 15, 2009 at 1:35 p.m., Solis was arrested and booked at the Parker Center Jail for Rape.  Solis is being held on $100,000.00 bail.

Detectives also believe Solis may be responsible for additional assaults on other female victims in the area of Huntington Drive South and Soto Street.  Solis has a distinctive Nike swoosh symbol tattooed on the right side of his head.  

Anyone with information about this crime or similar assaults by Solis is asked to call Hollenbeck Detective Division Sex Crimes Detail at 323-342-8992.  During off-hours, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text “Crimes” with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on Web tips.  When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.”  Tipsters may remain anonymous.
