The man is suspected of grabbing and possibly trying to kidnap three young girls in recent months as they walked on or near bridges crossing the 101 Freeway in Echo Park, LAPD Detective Jon Hurd said today. In two cases the girls were alone and walking to school.
The attacks have taken place in March, July and, most recently, about a week ago when the suspect grabbed the arm of a 12 year-old girl as she and her mother walked near the Bonne Brae Street bridge over the 101 Freeway. More details in Eastside 911.
