Rape Suspect Sought in South Los Angeles Attack NR10486ah

November 5, 2010

On November 3, 2010, District 10 City Councilmember Herb Wesson approved a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the Baldwin Village rapists. Mayor Villaraigosa approved the reward proposal on November 4, 2010.  Suspect 2 has altered his appearance by waxing his eyebrow and shaving his hairline into a box-shaped appearance.

Los Angeles:
Los Angeles Police Department detectives are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who raped a teenager in South Los Angles on August 11, 2010.

Around 7 p.m., a teenage girl was walking home from a festival at Jim Gilliam Park and noticed she was being followed by two men.  The teen believed she was going to be harmed and ran.  Suspect No. 1 caught up to the girl, grabbed her from behind and began choking her.  Suspect No.2 then fondled the victim’s breasts.  He then pushed her to the ground and raped her.  The attack occurred under a carport, behind an apartment complex in the 4000 block of Coco Avenue.  After the attack, Suspect No. 1 who had been acting as a lookout also attempted to sexually assault the victim.  The victim ran away before the second attack occurred.  Both suspects chased the victim to her house.

Suspect No. 1 was described only as an African American male.  Suspect No.2 is described as a male Hispanic in his 20s with black hair and brown eyes.  He had a black mole on his right shoulder and a tattoo of a circle with a star inside of it on his chest.  He stood 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighed 185 pounds and was last seen wearing a black T-shirt and blue Dickies pants.  

Anyone with information about this crime is urged to call Southwest sexual assault Detective Silvia Sanchez at 323-290-2975.  During non-business hours or weekends, calls may be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may 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 key pads) using a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters can also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on “web tips” and follow the prompts.
