LOS ANGELES (CBS) — The Los Angeles Police Department has issued a predator alert after a woman was sexually assaulted early Wednesday morning.

The victim was walking home from The Darkroom bar at Melrose Avenue and Poinsettia Place just after midnight when she was attacked and raped in an alley.

Neighbors say they’re shocked and concerned.

“This happened just across from my house. This is a friendly and decent neighborhood. Hard to believe it could happen here. I’m now concerned about walking after midnight,” Evie Lago said.

Officials are asking women to walk in lighted areas and stay away from alleys.

No other details were immediately released.
