The first assault connected to Garcia happened on July 10 around 8:35 a.m. when he allegedly followed a woman walking under the Harbor (110) Freeway on Olympic Boulevard. The Los Angeles Police Department said he attempted to sexually assault her and tried to remove her clothing.

The following morning around 10:45 a.m. Garcia allegedly approached another woman from behind in the area of Chick Hearn Court and Georgia Street, near Arena, slapped her back and fled, the LAPD reported.


Over the weekend, Garcia is suspected of committing three crimes on Saturday, July 15. The first attack happened to an elderly woman cleaning her front yard in the 1000 block of Fraser Avenue around 6:15 a.m. in East Los Angeles.

The 67-year-old woman was punched several times in the face before Garcia tried to sexually assault her.

“Garcia suddenly approached the victim from behind, pulled her hair and threw her to the ground,” the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said.

According to sheriff’s detectives, Garcia “punched the victim in the face multiple times.”

A couple of hours later, around 9:20 a.m., Garcia allegedly approached another woman as she walked home from church in the 1300 block of South Alvarado Street in the Pico-Union district, police said. He struck her in the face multiple times, knocking her to the ground and causing her to lose consciousness. He stole the woman’s property and ran from the scene.

Police said around 15 minutes later, he sexually assaulted a third woman from behind as she was searching through the trunk of her car in the 1300 block of South Burlington Avenue.
