Downtown: The Los Angeles Police Department’s Central Area Detectives arrested a suspect and are seeking additional victims of Sexual Assault.
On February 8, 2022, detectives investigating alleged sexual assaults, arrested 32-year-old Aadrian Evelyn a resident of Los Angeles for 286(F) P.C. Detectives have been investigating Evelyn for three separate sexual assaults of three different males that occurred in recent months.
According to the victims, they responded to an online dating app, believing that they were communicating with a female. The female then sent pictures and sexually suggestive texts that made the victims believe that they were going to go to the female’s residence and engage in a sexual encounter. Instead, when the victims arrived, they were met by Evelyn, who claimed to be a friend of the female. Detectives determined that Evelyn pretended to be a single female through photos and texts, in order to lure the victims to the apartment. Once they arrived, Evelyn is believed to have drugged the victims and sodomized them while they were unconscious.
Victim statements and DNA evidence were used to link Evelyn to the assaults. Detectives believe that there may be more victims who have yet to come forward and are hoping that the arrest of Evelyn will encourage them to report their experience. Evelyn remains in police custody with $300,000 bail.
