Hiker Sexually Assaulted In Elysian Park

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a sexual predator who sexually assaulted a female hiker in Elysian Park.

The woman was hiking by herself on Oct. 31 near Academy Drive and Stadium Way when she was assaulted around 1 p.m., Los Angeles police said.

The victim was nearing the end of the trail, about 25 feet from her vehicle, when the suspect came out of the bushes and grabbed her from behind, officials said. The suspect put one hand over her mouth and sexually assaulted her with his other hand.

The woman was able to break free from her attacker before he fled on foot into the park.

The suspect is described as a male, Hispanic with black hair and brown eyes. He is about 5 feet 8 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing approximately 210 pounds and is in his early to mid 30s. The suspect was wearing a white T-shirt and light blue basketball shorts, with white tennis shoes.

Anyone with information should call LAPD detectives at (213) 847-5454.
