Serial Sexual Assault Suspect Arrested

Los Angeles: North Hollywood Detectives have arrested a serial sexual assault suspect and asking any additional victims and witnesses to come forward.

On August 14, 2008, Miguel Angel Barrera, 44, a resident of Chino Hills, was arrested for multiple sexual assaults which occurred in the North Hollywood Area. To date, Barrera is known to have committed sexual offenses against three victims over the past two years.

The female victims are 14 through 23 years old. Barrera met his victims as they walked along the street in both the North Hollywood and Hollywood areas. He offered them high dollar employment as models for magazines and commercials. Barrera often spoke of his connection with movie studios while displaying business cards and photography equipment. After the victims agreed, they were taken to motels in Studio City where they were initially photographed before Barrera sexually assaulted them.

Barrera is an Argentinean with black hair and light colored eyes, 5-10, 190 lbs. He speaks with an Argentinean accent, dark complexion, and wears his hair slightly long.

Barrera has been associated with two different vehicles, a white 4-door sedan and a red 4-door, 2005 Dodge truck, license number 7P17947.

Barrera had applied to become a US citizen in the past. That request had been denied by Immigration and Customs Enforcement and an ICE hold has been placed on him in addition to his one million dollar bail.

The Los Angeles Police Department is interested in speaking with anyone who may have information on Barrera. All inquiries may be made to North Hollywood Detective Karen Crawford at 818-623-4090. On weekends or after hours, call the toll free 24-hour anonymous number at 1-877-LAWFULL (529-3855).
