#LASD Major Crimes Bureau Seeking Public’s Assistance in Identifying Possible Kidnapping Victim/Suspect #EastLA

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, Major Crimes Bureau – Metro Detail, is investigating a possible kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon, which occurred on Monday, May 22, 2023, at approximately 8:38 p.m., on the 3800 block of E. Third St, in the unincorporated community of East Los Angeles.
The incident was captured on surveillance video and depicted a female adult attempting to board a Montebello Transit bus. As the female boarded the bus, she was confronted from behind by a male adult suspect.
The bus driver and a passenger attempted to intervene on the female’s behalf when the male suspect broke a window on the bus and retrieved a handgun from a nearby vehicle, described as a 4-door, white colored, possible 2022 Honda Civic.  The suspect pointed the handgun at the bus driver and appeared to coerce the female into the nearby vehicle, driven by the male suspect.  The vehicle then left the location east on Third Street, to the eastbound S/R 60 freeway and out of view.    
The victim is described as a female Hispanic in her mid-20’s, approximately 5”-6” tall, 130lbs., with brown hair. The suspect is described as male Hispanic in his mid-20’s, approximately 5’8”,170-190 lbs., driving a 4-door white, possible 2022 Honda Civic.
