Manhunt for Man Who Tortured and Sexually Assaulted Girlfriend NR09541ah

Los Angeles: A manhunt is under way as Los Angeles police search for a man who beat, tortured and sexually assaulted his girlfriend on October 31, 2009, in South Los Angeles.  

Police are looking for 30-year-old Miguel Angel Herrera of Los Angeles.  He is described as Hispanic, black hair, brown eyes and was last seen driving a Nissan, Titan pick-up truck license plate number 8-K-5-5-4-6-9.

At around 9:00 p.m., Herrera’s girlfriend showed up at his apartment located in the 1100 block of West 41st Place.  Once inside the apartment, he and the woman became involved in a heated argument about her being late.  Detectives say Herrera became angry and restrained the woman.  He then subjected to torture her by punching, cutting her with a knife and striking her multiple times with an electrical cord.  During the attack, Herrera poured acid on the victim’s face and sexually assaulted her.  Afterwards, he let the woman drive off and followed her in his pick-up truck.  The victim was able to elude the suspect’s vehicle and drove to her family’s house.  A family member drove the victim to Newton Division Police Station.  An ambulance was summoned and the woman was taken to a local hospital where she was treated and released.

“This incident appears to be an isolated incident and it is believed that it’s not related to any other assaults in the area,” said Detective Eloy Ochoa.  Police however, are requesting the public’s assistance in locating him and additional victims.


A photograph of the suspect and a vehicle similar to the one used by the suspect will be available through Media Relations.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call Southwest Detectives at 213-485-2585.  After hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to a 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 or by texting CRIMES (274637) and beginning the message with the letters LAPD.  Tipsters may also submit information on the LAPD website: www.lapdonline.org.  All tips may remain anonymous.
