Suspect Wanted For Brazen Daytime Attack On Boy in Pico Rivera Park
By EGP News Report
Local authorities are searching for a brazen rapist who attacked a 6-year-old boy in a bathroom stall at Rio Hondo Park in Pico Rivera, then walked the crying boy over to his mother.
The alleged crime occurred after a soccer game in the park and was reported at about 2:35 pm on Saturday, July 2. On Tuesday, the Sheriff’s Department released a composite drawing of the suspect.
According to authorities the suspect is described as a white male in his 30s, 6-foot, to 6-foot, 2-inches tall weighing 200 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes. He had a moustache and goatee, and wore a dark basketball jersey and dark basketball shorts.
The boy “went into the bathroom alone, and was sexually molested by the white man with tattoos on his neck and one arm,” Sheriff’s Lt. Robert Smith of the Pico Riviera Station said.
Witnesses told local reporters that after the assault, the man walked the boy to his mother saying that he had been calling for her. Shortly after, the boy told his mother what happened, and she alerted authorities.
The suspect fled in a white van with a partial license of 6J—–, witnesses told deputies. Witnesses told deputies the blond, blue-eyed man wore a bandanna with Mexican flag on it on his head, and at least one person told ABC7 that the suspect might have had an English or Irish accent.
