Man Arrested at East LA Park for Child Annoyance

A 72-year-old Los Angeles man suspected of trying to lure a girl into a park restroom in unincorporated East Los Angeles was behind bars earlier this week, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Luis Papilla Nyala was arrested on Saturday, Jan. 26, at Ruben F. Salazar Park in the 3800 block of Whittier Boulevard after a deputy from the sheriff’s Parks Bureau responded to a report that a man was annoying and harassing a child near a restroom, according to a sheriff’s department statement.

Nyala was booked at the sheriff’s East Los Angeles Station. His bail was set at $20,000, according to the sheriff’s department.
