Man Breaks Into East Hollywood Apartment Building And Attacks Woman
A woman in East Hollywood was attacked by a man who had broken into her apartment building on Thursday evening, authorities said.
The woman noticed a man she didn't recognize in the common area of her apartment building at 1400 North Edgemont last night, LAPD Officer Sara Faden told LAist. She confronted him and asked him what he was doing in the building. Things escalated, and the man physically attacked the woman, but she was able to fight back and get away and call police around 7:45 p.m. Police also told the Los Angeles Times that the man attempted to pull the woman's pants down.
The man ran away, and police haven't found any suspects. He was described as a male Hispanic man in his 20s, but police may later release a composite sketch of the man. The woman had cuts and bruises to her upper body and head. She was checked out by medical personnel at the scene, but she wasn't admitted to the hospital.
