WOODLAND HILLS—The LAPD Robbery-Homicide Division Special Assault Section is asking for the public's help in a kidnapping and assault case that occurred at the Westfield Topanga Mall on the Fourth of July.

 

Around 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 4, a 19-year-old woman had just left her job at the mall when the suspect approached her as she stood near her automobile. Armed with a knife, the suspect forced the victim into her car, holding her hostage for three hours as he forced her to drive him around areas in the San Fernando Valley, Pasadena, and downtown Los Angeles; he fled in Los Angeles.

 

The suspect stole possessions from the victim as well as gained access to her bank account through her ATM card, according to the press release.

 

During the three hour interval, the victim was also sexually assaulted.

 

The suspect is described as being in his early 20s, African-American, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 140 to 160 pounds with a fit build.

 

The LAPD is urging anyone with information to contact 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247). Those wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Those with information also have the option to go to LAPDOnline.org, click on “webtips” and follow the prompts.
