One suspect in series of sex crimes in custody, another outstanding

Between the dates of May 14 and June 22, two suspects approached young females who were walking or jogging alone on city streets. The suspects grabbed the women’s buttocks and breasts, then fled — on foot, on skateboard, on a bicycle and, in several instances, in a silver Mercedes Benz sedan. The vehicle used in this series is now in custody. 

Witnesses described the suspects as Black males in their early 20s wearing athletic clothing. One suspect is tall and slender (in custody), the unidentified suspect is shorter and heavier set. Though they had not been seen together, both were connected to the silver Mercedes. LAPD’s Operations-West Bureau and Culver City Police Department Detectives have identified as many as 20 possible incidents including occurrences in Culver City and the Palms and Venice Beach areas of Los Angeles.
