LASD and Metro are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying a suspect in connection with a sexual assault on the Metro Red Line.
Anyone with information concerning the suspect pictured above can call Transit LASD at (888) 950-7233. If you wish to remain anonymous, call “LA Crime Stoppers” by dialing 800-222-TIPS (8477), texting the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or using the website http://lacrimestoppers.org.
Metro encourages everyone to report sexual harassment and any crime to the Sheriff’s hotline at 1.888.950.SAFE (7233) or call 911. Additionally, passengers can inform a bus operator, who can summon help. On a Metro Rail train, passengers can use the Emergency Call intercom located in the rail car. You can also report incidents via the LA Metro Transit Watch app, which is available for free download at the App Store and Google Play.
I know one of the hardest things to do when you encounter or are a victim of crime, is to report it. But reporting the crime helps the authorities identify, arrest and remove assaulters and harassers from the system. We truly appreciate those who takes a stand against these types of behavior because everyone deserves a safe ride.
Metro also works in partnership with Peace Over Violence to provide non-law enforcement support for victims.
