Teardrop Rapist Strikes Again

The infamous Teardrop Rapist may have struck again this month when a woman in South Los Angeles was accosted by an armed man who tried to sexually assault her in an alley before he was scared off.

The 29-year-old woman was alone at about 5:30 a.m. on June 15 when she was approached by a man near 25thStreet and Naomi Avenue.

The assailant tried to talk with her and then put a gun in her face. He forced her into an alley where he attempted to sexually assault her. The man ran off when a vehicle pulled into the alley. The attack resembled those of the Teardrop Rapist.

The Teardrop Rapist is believed to be responsible for as many as 35 attacks since 1996. In the last decade and a half, the serial rapist has been linked through DNA samples and other collected evidence.

His last attack occurred in November when he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl in the southwest Los Angeles area. The incident also occurred in the early morning hours.

The Los Angeles Police Department released several sketches of the suspect drawn over the years and noted that there are unexplained gaps in the attacks.

When Los Angeles police asked the public for help in identifying the suspect during a news conference in 2003, the Teardrop Rapist didn’t strike again for three years. After a 2006 attack in the Century City area, another six years passed before he struck again on November 10 of last year.

In the 2003 incident, the Teardrop Rapist attacked a 15-year-old girl who was walking in the area of Gage and Hoover avenues. He asked her for directions and then pulled out a gun. He took her to an alley and tried to sexually assault her before running away.

The Teardrop Rapist is described as Latino (Whatever that means!) with brown hair and brown eyes. He is not very tall and stands between 5 feet 2 inches and 5 feet 6 inches. He weighs between 130 and 170 pounds. He has a teardrop tattoo below one of his eyes.

If you or a loved one was attacked, the owner of the property where the crime took place may be legally responsible for your injuries. It is important that you contact a personal injury lawyer to determine if you can file a lawsuit to collect damages. A competent and reputable injury lawyer can help you receive the compensation you deserve for your pain and suffering.
