LAPD releases drawing of Elysian Park sexual assault suspect

The LAPD today released a composite drawing of a man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman as she finished an afternoon hike in Elysian Park on Oct. 31.  The LAPD provided the following description of the suspect:

The suspect is described as a male, Hispanic with black hair and brown eyes.  He stands about 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet10 inches, weighs approximately 210 pounds and is in his early to mid 30s.  He was wearing a white T-shirt and light blue basketball shorts, with white tennis shoes.

The woman had notified her Twitter followers that she was in the park before the attack.  It’s not clear if the victim’s Twitter post made her a target but police are investigating it as a  possibility, said officer G. Juarez with the Northeast Division. Undercover officers have been in the park since the attack to try and find the suspect, who the woman recognized from a previous visit

Anyone with information is urged to contact Northeast Area Sex Crimes Detectives at 213-847-5454.
