Monterey Park Man Accused of Rape Arrested

Police said Tuesday they are trying to determine whether a Monterey Park man charged with raping two women may have additional victims.

Andrew “Andy” Van Bui, 26, is charged with two counts each of forcible rape and sexual penetration by a foreign object, along with one count of forcible oral copulation, stemming from crimes that allegedly occurred Aug. 26 and Sept. 2.

Bui, who is being held on $1.5 million bail, was arrested about 11 p.m. Sept. 3 after the two women identified him as their alleged attacker, said Monterey Park police Lt. Bill Cuevas.

Police believe that Bui befriended the women at a cafe where he worked in Alhambra and then used social media to set up a meeting or invite them to his residence, where they were allegedly attacked, according to the lieutenant.

Anyone with information on Bui, who is due at the Alhambra courthouse on Sept. 26 for a bail review hearing, was asked to call Monterey Park police at (626) 307-1236.
