A 28-year-old woman, who fell out of a moving LAPD police car, has accused an LAPD officer of sexually assaulting her while she was handcuffed in the back seat of the vehicle.

This is just another piece to an already suspicious account. At the time of the alleged assault, the woman was taken into custody on suspicion of public intoxication on March 17.

After being taken into custody, the woman testified that one of the officers climbed into the back seat and began, “assaulting me, molesting me” after a brief stop.

During her disposition, the woman said, “he was grabbing my left inner thigh, you know, trying to – I’m assuming opening my legs, touching my chest, grabbing at it.”

Once the vehicle began moving, around three in the morning, a security camera captured the patrol car pass out of view. Moments later it can be seen on the security camera footage a woman wearing only an undergarment over her chest lying motionless in the street.

The officer’s report stated that the woman had fallen out of the vehicle as the patrol car accelerated to about 10 mph after stopping at a traffic light. The video footage contradicts the officers’ account to the paramedics.

The woman suffered a shattered jaw, severe headaches, and general pain.

Cmdr. Andy Smith, a spokesperson for the LAPD, said an internal investigation was opened immediately after the LAPD Internal Affairs Division was alerted to the woman’s allegations.  The investigation remains open at this time. The two officers remain in the field, Smith said in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.

Man Nearly Beaten to Death in Huntington Beach

On Friday evening, a fight apparently broke out between two groups of teenagers at Murdy Park in Huntington Beach. A woman and her boyfriend witnessed the fight and attempted to break it up. This then led to four teens ran after the man and beating him nearly to death with their skateboards.

The four teens whose names, ages and genders are currently unavailable were arrested on suspicions of murder following the attack.

The woman passing by attempted to cease the fighting, but was then attacked. Her boyfriend, the 25-year-old victim, then intervened to save her. The kids chased him across the street to a Laundromat and beat him severely. The man was immediately rushed to the UCI Medical Center’s trauma center and underwent emergency surgery.

The teens are currently detained and face attempted murder charges. The complete details of the event are unknown, but the police are investigating the two versions. The woman’s story claims that the two of them endeavored to stop the fight and were consequently attacked; a father of one of the teens claims that the man assaulted his child and the others first, and was then attacked in self-defense.

No matter which version of the story is valid, the fact is that a man was seriously beaten by four teenagers with skateboards. His current situation is unavailable; but hopefully because he was quickly taken to the hospital, he will make a full recovery. The severity of his condition will likely impact the outcome of the teens’ trial, as the charges that they face currently are only attempted murder.

Unfortunate events like this can happen to anyone at anytime, and it is important to know what to do next. Medical bills add up and emotional stresses can be more harmful than physical injuries. Contact an injury attorney today to start working on receiving your due compensation.

Crime Up in L.A. Area, Irvine Named Safest City in U.S.

Over Downtown Los Angeles

Depending on the area an individual lives in, crime rates can vary. In fairly recent reports, the city of Irvine, located in Orange County, was named the safest city in the United States for the eighth year in a row. A resident living in Irvine may experience less circumstances involving criminal behavior as compared to someone living in Los Angeles. Los Angeles County recently had a significant increase of crime. For those living in a more crime-prone area, it will be smart to research the amount of criminal activities that occur, avoiding and decreasing the chances of personal injury or attack.

According to the LA Time’s crime reports database, crime rates are up in the Los Angeles county area. Twelve L.A. neighborhoods reported an increase in crime in the week of June 2 – June 8. Six of the neighborhoods saw an increase in violent crime and six other neighborhoods had an increase in property crimes.

Crimes reported in the LA area included aggravated assault, theft, robbery, grand theft auto, and a few others. The LA Time’s crime reports database covers about 200 neighborhoods around the L.A. area. The database keeps track of both short-term and long-term statistics on different L.A. neighborhoods.

The neighborhood of Lake Balboa, which normally has an average of 0.8 violent crimes a week reported, saw four instances of violent crime in the June 2 – June 8 week. Downtown L.A. had the highest number of reports in one week, totaling 31 violent crimes. However, downtown has an average of 21.5 violent crimes reported a week.

In the week of June 2 – June 8, Lake Balboa had four violent crimes and seven property crimes. That averages to about 4.2 crimes for every 10,000 people. In the downtown area, there were 31 violent crimes and 71 property crimes reported. That averages to 4.9 crimes for every 10,000 people. Most of the crimes in downtown LA involved theft.

For property crimes, the Pacific Palisades neighborhood had 14 instances reported when it normally has an average of 5.8 per week. Central-Alameda had 33 property crimes, up from its weekly average of 16.8.

The type of neighborhood an individual lives in can greatly determine the kinds of crime he or she will experience. Take into account the city of Irvine; as the safest city in the U.S., the chances of an Irvine resident being robbed or assaulted is very slim in comparison to a resident living in L.A. But whichever city a person resides in, chances of accidents, personal injury, and crime will never go away. It is important to know that there are Los Angeles personal injury attorneys who can help individuals deal with the aftermath of a home break-in or with any personal injuries received from assault.


Demon-Hearing Man Attacks Woman, Sentenced to Jail

No one wants to be attacked in their own home, and no one likes being a victim to personal injury. In fact, many resident owners go through great lengths to protect their homes. A house and home is usually where an individual feels most safe and secure in. A home is like an individual’s castle; it should be protected and looked over at all times. With locks, bolts, and security systems—what happens if an intruder still manages to break in? A resident can only take so many precautions.

On a peaceful Sunday morning, a San Clemente home was trespassed by an Orange County teen, destroying the safety of the home and breeching any security confidence the family may have had on their residence. The seemingly calm start of the day immediately became chaotic when the burglar showed signs of crazy behavior. This was not just a simple burglary; this crime also involved injuries and traumatic events.

Orange County resident Jonathan Ashton Aikin, who attacked a woman in her own San Clemente home, plead guilty to charges on Monday, June 4. Aikin has been charged with child abuse and endangerment and assault with a deadly weapon. He also has also been charged with a misdemeanor count of being under the influence of a controlled substance. However, all charges were dismissed.

Aikin attacked the San Clemente resident on May 15 last year. After entering her home on 9:45 a.m. Sunday morning and high off narcotics, the 19-year old intruder began to attack the female resident while her children were present. The woman claimed that Aikin seemed to have “incredible strength.” Aikin entered the home, confessed his love to the woman though they have never met, and began choking her. He also exhibited paranoia and kept telling the woman to keep the demons away.

While Aikin choked the mother, the 5-year old son jumped on the attacker’s back in a desperate attempt to help his mother. Flung away by Aikin, the child received a swollen left eye and cheek. The mother reached for the phone to call the police only to have Aikin knock the phone away from her. The female victim yelled for help and thankfully her Marine neighbor upstairs heard her pleas for help. Rushing to help her, her neighbors Jenna and Justin Gerou came into her home. Jenna Gerou was able to help get the mother’s children to safety while Justin Gerou held off Aikin. Police officers had to Taser Aikin in order to get control of him.

On Thursday, June 7, Aikin began to serve his three years sentence in prison. He must also register himself as a sex offender.
