Three Teenagers Robbed, One Sexually Assaulted on Way Home from School
Police are looking for two men who robbed three teenagers and sexually assaulted a fourth as the victims walked home from Los Alamitos High School yesterday.
The two men, who are described as African-American and in their 20s, started their crime spree at about 2:45 p.m. by walking up to a 15-year-old boy, pretending to have a weapon, and then demanding his cell phone. They then approached a 15-year-old girl and demanded her cell phone as well, but gave it back when they realized it wasn't working.
Finally, they attacked a boy and a girl who were walking together, both of whom were also 15. They slapped the boy and took his phone, then slammed the girl against a car and groped her.
Anyone with information about the attacks should contact the Los Alamitos police detectives bureau at (562) 431-2255, ext. 405.
