Police Searching for Attempt Kidnap Suspect

******NEWS RELEASE UPDATE********

Mission Area Detectives have identified the suspect as 24 year-old David Trujillo of Sylmar. Trujillo was booked on Saturday, December 22, 2007 and is being held without bail at Van Nuys Jail.

Los Angeles:
Los Angeles police need help in finding a sexual predator who inappropriately touched a young teen and attempted to kidnap a 4-year-old girl in North Hills on December 14, 2007.

At around 7:45 p.m., a 17-year-old teen was walking to a nearby store at the corner of Rayen Street and Langdon Avenue, when a man approached her from the front and rubbed her thigh. The man smiled at the teen and walked away, authorities said.

An hour later, the same suspect entered an apartment complex courtyard located in the 15500 block of Rayen Street, and began casing a group of children that were playing. After spotting the property security guard, he walked away. Once the security guard was out of sight, the suspect walked back towards the children, and grabbed a 4-year-old girl who was sitting on the ground playing. A young boy recognized the young girl being whisked away and ran after the suspect. The suspect put the child down and casually walked away.

The suspect was described as Latino, 30-35 years of age, 5-foot-7 inches tall and weighs between 140 and 180 pounds. He had a faded scar on his left cheek. He was last seen wearing a black beanie, with an Oakland Raiders logo on the front, long sleeve thermal shirt, dark pants, and white shoes.

Detectives believe that the same suspect was involved in two prior sexual assaults that took place in the same vicinity.

Police are urging women not to walk alone in the area and to call the police if they see anyone suspicious.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Mission Sexual Assault Detective Manuel Armijo at 818-818-9810. During off-hours or on weekends call the 24-hour toll free number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
