Barricaded Suspect Surrenders After Standoff With Police

Los Angeles: A rape suspect kept police at bay for nearly two hours early this afternoon before surrendering peacefully to police.

On July 16, 2008, at about 6:30 a.m., Officers from West Valley Station had been called to a local hospital to investigate a sexual assault. During the course of their investigation they received information that the suspect, later identified as Robert McCord IV, was possibly at his residence in the 23700 block of Hartland Street.

When Officers arrived at the residence they contacted McCord by telephone. In a conversation with detectives McCord refused orders to come out of the house and talk with detectives. It was determined that he had armed and barricaded himself inside the residence. The Los Angeles Police Department SWAT Team was called out.

After an approximate two hour standoff, McCord walked out of the house and surrendered without incident. He was arrested and booked for Forcible Rape and is being held on $130,000 bail.

The victim was treated and released from the hospital and did not suffer life threatening injuries.

The investigation is being conducted West Valley Division Detectives, Detective Joel Price. He can be reached at 818-374-7721. During off hours and weekends call the toll free Detective Tip Line at 1-877-LAWFULL.
