The LAPD today released photos and information on 30-year-old Miguel Angel Herrera, who is suspected of horrendous crimes against his girlfriend on Halloween night. He allegedly restrained her, punched her, cut her with a knife, whipped her with an electrical cord and worst of all, raped and poured acid on her before letting her drive away. Why was Herrera so angry? She arrived at his place late. “This incident appears to be an isolated incident and it is believed that it’s not related to any other assaults in the area,” said Detective Eloy Ochoa. Still, Herrera is still on the lose and was last seen driving a red Nissan, Titan pick-up truck license plate number 8-K-5-5-4-6-9.
