Detectives Seek Additional Victims in an Apparent Sexual Assault Case

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles police have identified the suspect responsible for the abduction and sexual assault of an 8-year-old boy and are seeking additional victims to come forward.

The suspect has been identified as 33-year-old Darwin Felix Alfelor, a resident of North Hollywood.  Investigators will file sexual assault charges on Alfelor who's currently in custody on unrelated felony charges. According to detectives, Alfelor's background revealed that he worked at various hospitals where he could have had contact with other children.

On June 13, 2007, at around 2 p.m., the boy's babysitter picked him up from Erwin Street Elementary School in Van Nuys.  The boy ran ahead of the babysitter, and she lost sight of him near the corner of Atoll Avenue and Victory Boulevard.

Alfelor, who was driving a newer black compact 4-door vehicle, stopped the car, grabbed the boy and pulled him inside.  The boy was driven to a location where he was sexually assaulted.  Afterwards, the suspect dropped the victim off in the 7600 block of Babcock Avenue.

A woman found the boy running down the street crying.  The boy was able to provide the woman with his parents' phone number and she called the police.

On November 13, 2008, detectives discovered that DNA evidence from the crime scene had linked Alfelor to the sexual assault incident.

Anyone with information about this case or who may have been victimized is asked to call Robbery Homicide Detectives at 213-485-2921.  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 are anonymous.
