The assault was reported at 1:25 a.m. near Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue, LAPD Sgt. L. Hoffman said.

“When officers arrived the suspect was not at the location so a perimeter was established,” Hoffman said.

Officers spotted the suspect within the perimeter around 5 a.m. He was taken into custody.

No further details have been released.
