MONTEREY PARK (CBSLA.com) — A 26-year-old man was in custody Tuesday on suspicion of sexually assaulting two women.
Andrew “Andy” Van Bui, of Monterey Park, was arrested Sept. 3 and charged with five felony counts of sexual assault on multiple women, investigators said.
Bui allegedly met the women at a café in Alhambra where he worked and began relationships with them through social media, according to authorities.
He then arranged to meet with them or invited the women to his home, where he allegedly sexually assaulted them, police said.
“Police encourage the public to be cautious when meeting and engaging persons via social media, texting, instant messaging and the Internet. Many times sexual predators use these networking sites and devices to disguise themselves, their intent, and to prey on unsuspecting persons,” Lt. Bill Cuevas said in a statement.
Bui’s bail was set at $1.5 million.
Detectives believe there may be possible additional victims. Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact the Monterey Park Police Department at (626)307-1236.
