Police Say Boy, 6, Sexually Assaulted In Bathroom Stall At Pico Rivera Park

PICO RIVERA (CBS) — Sheriff’s detectives Sunday were searching for a suspect in an alleged sexual assault at a park in Pico Rivera.

According to authorities, the victim, identified as a 6-year-old boy, reported the incident about 2:35 p.m. Saturday after a soccer match at Rio Hondo Park.

“He 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 a local television news station that after the incident, the man walked the crying child out to his mother, handed him over and then fled in a white van with a partial license beginning with “6J.”

The suspect was described by witnesses as about 6’2, weighing approximately 200 pounds with blond hair and blue eyes. He was last seen wearing a bandanna on his head with a Mexican Flag on it.

Anyone with more information is asked to contact the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Special Victims Bureau at (877) 710-LASD or “Crime Stoppers” at (800) 222-TIPS to remain anonymous.

    How do you let a small child go to the bathroom alone ? The parents must have been real busy !

    1. Nancy Mallett says:

      If you had a child you’d know that at the age of 6 is kind of iffy, whether or not you should take them to the ladies room or men’s room. But aside from that, how about instead of blaming the mother for not walking her little boy into the girl’s room, you blame the psycho that did it! What has our world come to where you can’t let a 6 yr old boy go to the bathroom by himself? It’s insane!!

  2. Jason says:

    I can already picture the guys in prison sharpening their shanks for this guy.

  3. VILLARAGOSA says:

    a white man with a lousy mexican flag on his head ?…something is not right here.

  4. Julie says:

    Who lets a baby out of their site to wander around a park?

    1. George says:

      Idiot, the article says he went into the bathroom alone, not that he was wondering around alone.

    2. Jeezus says:

      d’oh….if mexicans weren’t so bent on coming here and then converting us to mexican ways, all that mexican pride-it’s fine but keep it to yourself, and waving the mexican flag on july 4th in america…ummm….ya….exactly. Those are signs of a people in conquer mode. Not in assimilate and advance the existing country mode. That’s conquer mode.

  5. Truth says:

    I would think a white buy around a soccer match at a park in Pico Rivera would stick out like a sore thumb. Were the parents not curious about a white man with a Mexican flag bandana returning their crying child to them? I first blame them for letting the child go alone to the bathroom. Second, for not having any intuition. Lastly, I hope police catch this loser so he can get his justice by the hands of other prisoners.

    1. Truth says:

      I meant white guy.

    2. MIC says:

      Plenty of white people in pico Rivera.

  6. George says:

    A lot of you people here are missing the real tragedy. I agree, the little boy should have accompanied to the bathroom but the crime was committed by the man. The parents of the little boy made a big mistake, but the dude who molested him should die.

  7. John says:

    He brought the crying child back to its mother. Oh, how considerate.

  8. George says:

    The mother, father and or the witnesses should have questioned the guy about why the boy was crying. I don’t care how big he is. Someone should have done something. If someone so much as brushes up, against, or by my children and they appear bothered by it in any way, I start asking questions. I don’t care who the hell they are or how big. Grow some balls people!

  9. jaybee says:

    Come on – Where’s your detective spirit. The Culprit is probably the father or the Uncle of a smaller boy this kid was picking on during the soccer match. What city was this in? WHO were the participants in the soccer match if you understand me? C’mon haven’t you learned anything observing this bunch all these decades?

    1. Sanityforus says:

      That has GOT to be the MOST idiotic response I’ve seen here so far, You take the cake buddy !!

    2. Jeezus says:

      idiotic? i’d say the most thought out response atleast. Everyone jumps on this or that bandwagon when the media reports it as so…..grow some thought and dont just take what the media gives us as sound information. The media wants us to fight each other and that’s the long and short of it. Keep us distracted and fighting for a nothing cause and we’ll be easier to control accordingly. How about we all just get along? Because it’s not each other we should be scared of, it’s the ones controlling us into this unwarranted warring.

    wow, racism never ceases-even in the face of an unfortunate situation.

  11. cermarie33 says:

    All you racist people a t like white people don’t take their eyes off their kids. We all make mistakes the kids pay for. Just like your kids will pay someday for their racist upbringing. Your the type of people who witness crimes and turn their head because you don’t think it will ever affect you.

    1. jennesey says:

      i so agree with you

  12. Monalsa Liz-ardo says:

    You suppose to take a 6.y.o. to the women’s restroom. I don’t think other women would mind when the kid is that young.The places like Starbuck has only one unisex restroom. I would take the kid in with me when I need to go.Never let your guards down for your kids, the vultures are always waiting for your mistakes.

  13. Imc says:

    Could we get the license plate the next time ? shame on you parents for not protecting your child ! He will have to live with that for the rest of his life !

  14. 1944victoriam says:

    Years ago a Grandmother waited outside while her little Grandson went alone into the Men’s bathroom at a campground. He never came out. Someone inside stabbed him to death. Now that I am a Grandmother I just make my Grandson come in the Lady’s bathroom with me. I don’t care what people think….I don’t want him alone in ANY public restroom. Poor kid, I hope he gets some counseling and i really hope they find the jerk/criminal soon!

  15. Sun says:

    4. JohnWayne says:

      Swam or walked? who cares as they are still illegals that we don’t want! Why so much attention on illegals as this is the 4th of July, a holiday for REAL AMERICANS and not 2nd class citizens like anchor babies! Their kind are simply not wanted here and the faster they learn than and go back to Mexico, the better!

      1. ABP says:

        JohnWayne,

        That’s the spirit… get back on your boat and start paddling back to Europe! WHO is the real illegal alien?

        Aztlan Border Patrol

  16. Blue eyed Patriot says:

    I’d rather marry a white lady than some brown wetter who does not shave her legs and has a bigger mustache than me and pops out kids like a dog having litters who does not know what cotraception is!

  17. jennesey says:

  18. jennesey says:

    ur n ass for being so racist you need to get a little education

  19. whities fiddle kiddies says:

    No, you would marry a little boy some where in Thailand but opportunity only allows access to your sons and random kids in the bathroom. I’d rather breed like a dog over breed WITH dogs and horses like your blue-eyed ilk. Hey. Hehehe, no wonder leg hair repels you; you prefee fur!!!LMAO

  20. Rick says:

    Does anyone know the whereabouts of Fabio?

  21. Shayk says:

    You are a piece of trash, no matter your lineage or where you come from. Period.

  22. whities fiddle kiddies says:

    @Shayk,
    So is your face. Period.

  23. Shayk says:

    No one of any race, creed, intellect or upbringinging of any human or spiritual worth would want to associate w/you let alone procreate of free will. Insecurity is a weakness all DNA breeds out so consider yourself extinct.

    1. SEXY COUGAR says:

      The bottom line is, ANY parent with common sense knows to GO INTO THE BATHROOM WITH A 6 year old. Mom should be prosecuted for neglect, plain and simple. She played a part in what happened to her son. Period. End of story.

  24. whities fiddle kiddies says:

    @Shayk, you’re special attention towards my comments towards whites (and non towards the disparaging comments about hispanics) let’s me know that YOU TOO ARE RACIST. Teehee @ the joke being on you. Sweetums, you are in the same category as I am!

  25. Give Me A Break says:

    Why isa everyone blaming the parents? Sometimes little kids run off when you least expect it and then you can’t find them right away. Also what if the kid was on the team playing and his parents weren’t there and it was the coaches responsibility to look after him? Either way its nobody elses fault that this happened other than the person who caused it which is this nasty pervert. No kid should ever have to feel scared to go anywhere by themselves if EVERYONE would act right! Including all of you idiot racists that only make society worse, which then you create kids that act just as stupid as you and its a never ending circle. So do everyone a favor and either act right or don’t ever procreate and just die off

    1. Teresa says:

      Everyone is blaming the parents because they are here illegally. Just having kids to stay in this country and they do not have resources to raise them or even give them attention. These litter breeders section 8 moms have got to go!

  26. Batman says:

    Nothing but illegals and anchor babies in Pico Rivera! First we pay taxes to support this welfare mom and here 6 kids and now we waste resources looking for the criminal. Their kind are what is breaking the state. They have no right to celebrate the Fourth of July as it is a holiday for Real Americans, not illegals or 2nd class citizen anchor babies!

  27. LIFE FOR SEX CRIMES says:

    Regardless of heritage, is is NEV ER okay for a child to be molested. The perp probably is an American Citizen with a record who was released from prosin because WE LET HIM OUT.

    If we don’t get tougher on crime, this will continue to happen. LIFE for sex crimes. Period. No early parole.

    1. NO TOLERANCE FOR SEX CRIMES says:

      Yes, LIFE FOR SEX CRIMES, or castrate and pay a hefty fne to the victim for therapy and pain and suffering. What is really wrong with society and continuous ongoing problem is that punishment is no longer severe enough. Sexual abuse is not a trivial crime we can just turn our away from. Contact your lawmakers and make it a serious issue. Lets stop the perpetrators from attacking your child again.

  28. ame says:

    I hope this P.O.S. is found and gets what he deserves! Put him in the general population when he’s in jail! I have a 6 year old son and I never let him out of my sight. My answer to him is always “only if I can see you”. My heart breaks for this little boy, I hope they get him counseling asap! And by the way, I don’t care what nationality the f***** is, I have no pity for rapists, or pedophiles!!! You idiots need to stop with the racist comments and realize that its a child in the middle of this horrible situation.

  29. Maggie says:

    Some of you people are amongst the sickest this society has. How pathetic, mean spirited and so hateful, truly the epitome of evil.

  30. Yours Truly says:

    Channel 2, you`re as meserable as yahoo for bating ignorant people from all races and pitting them against each other. You suck and so does your network.

  31. Vani says:

    All of you racist are dumb a$$! AMERICA THE LAND OF THE FREE IS BUILT ON IMMIGRANTS! NO MATTER WHAT GENERATION YOU ARE YOUR AN ILLEGAL! LEARN SOME F!C%!NG HISTORY! AND SYMPATHY FOR MISSING the BIGGER PICTURE!A CHILDS INNOCENCE WAS TAKEN FROM HIM…SOMETHING HE WILL NEVER REGAIN! ALL HE GOT IN RETURN FOR IT IS HORRIFIC MEMORIES AND THE FEELING OF HELPLESSNESS! THAT P.O.S. DESERVES WAY MORE THAN PRISON TIME…

    1. The Truth says:

      Maybe this will teach illegals to stop coming here as this would have never happened if the mom stayed in mexico where she belongs!

  32. Gabriel Hill says:

    I hope the perv kills himself to save us a few bucks on justice.
