Sexual Battery Suspect


On April 2, 2014, two separate incidents of sexual battery with similar circumstances were reported to the Monrovia Police Department.

On April 1, at approximately 9:00pm, an adult female victim was walking in the 700 block of S. Fifth Ave. when a male suspect approached her from the front and hugged her tightly by wrapping his arms around her body.  The suspect slapped the victim on the buttocks and then left the scene on a skateboard.  No injuries were reported.

On April 2, at approximately 4:50pm, an adult female victim was walking in the 800 block of W. Chestnut when a male suspect approached her from behind and reached around her body, gabbing both of her breasts with his hands.  The suspect commented on the victim’s breast size and kicked her in the leg.  The suspect then left the scene with a skateboard in his hand.  No injuries were reported.

Both victims described suspect as a male Hispanic, 16-20 years of age, 5’06” – 5’08”, thin build, wearing a red hooded sweatshirt and dark pants.  The suspect was in possession of skateboard during both incidents. 

If you have any information regarding the identity of this suspect, please contact the Monrovia Police Department at (626) 256-8000.




On 12/07/13 at approximately 2:57 in the afternoon, a residential burglary occurred in the 200 block of E. Evergreen in Monrovia.  Surveillance footage shows a silver, four-door sedan (possibly a Lexus 300 series) with tinted windows drive in front of the victim’s residence multiple times.   Then two male black suspects are seen walking down the driveway of the victim’s residence, into the backyard.  They entered the residence by breaking the rear glass door.  The silver vehicle continues to drive past the victim’s residence while the suspects are inside.   Moments later, the victim returns home and the suspects run out from the victim’s backyard and towards the silver vehicle.  The victim did not see the suspects.  The loss was jewelry and U.S. Currency.

This incident is similar to many other burglaries that have recently occurred in the San Gabriel Valley.  Several of the incidents involve suspects using luxury model rental vehicles.  The suspects knock on the front door, after no answer, they proceed to enter the rear yard and force entry into a rear door or window of the residence.  If you see something suspicious in your neighborhood, please contact your local police department immediately.
