LOS ANGELES - The LAPD has released composite sketches of the possible victim in a kidnapping in El Sereno, and a sketch of a possible suspect. Police Tuesday called off their search for a young woman whom witnesses said had been assaulted and kidnapped in El Sereno.
The attack, which occurred Monday night near the El Sereno Recreation Center Parking lot, left police baffled, but yielded several clues.
The attack occurred shortly after Monday, officials said. Witnesses saw a man strike a female in the face, drag her up a hill by her hair and tear at her clothes as she screamed for help, Los Angeles police Commander Andrew Smith said.
