Seven-Year-Old Girl Sexually Assaulted Outside Home as Parents Sit Inside
A seven-year-old girl was sexually assaulted on Saturday outside her house in Covina, reports KTLA.
The girl was playing in her driveway when a man described as white and between the ages of 18 and 40 clapped his hand over her mouth, picked her up and took her to the side of the garage, where he molested her.
She was able to get away after biting his hand, and she ran screaming into her home where her parents were. They watched as the man ran away and fled the scene in what KTLA describes as a "2005 or newer burgundy Nissan Altima with paper license plates reading, 'Wondries' in black and neon letters."
