July 23, 2019

Lake Balboa: Detectives from the
Los Angeles Police Department’s West Valley Division have released
a photo of a suspect charged in a several sexual assault cases in
the hope of identifying other victims.
22-year-old Omar Talley, a male Black has been charged by the Los
Angeles District Attorney’s Office with three counts of rape with
multiple victims, two counts of oral copulation, and one count of
forcible acts of sexual penetration. He is being held in the
custody of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department with a bail
of $1,600,000.

Talley claims to be a nightclub promoter and social media
influencer. He moved from the state of New Jersey to California a
few years ago, taking up residency in the Lake Balboa area of the
San Fernando Valley. Talley would frequently travel to nightclubs
in the Hollywood and West Hollywood Areas. He would then befriend
young women in their early 20’s and gain their confidence. Talley
would then order a ride share service to transport himself and the
young women to his residence in the 6600 block of Valjean Avenue,
located in the Lake Balboa area or a nearby ‘after party’ location.
Once at one of these locations, Talley would sexually assault the
young women. Several of the women escaped during the attack, as
one young woman did on July 11, 2019. This young woman immediately
summoned for help and LAPD West Valley patrol officers responded to
her location. Their investigation revealed Talley forced the woman
to perform sexual acts, physically assaulted her and spoke
degrading words to her during the commission of his criminal act.
“It appears Omar Talley would be charming just before the sexual
act, then change his demeanor and force the women to perform sexual
acts against their will,” stated Detective II Katherine
