On Thursday, Dec. 22, 2022, LASD deputies with the Parks Bureau were called to Kenneth Hahn Park located in the 4100 block of La Cienega Boulevard around 3:30 p.m. regarding a sexual assault involving a male suspect and a female victim who was walking in the park.

The suspect was described by authorities as a Hispanic man between the ages of 20 and 25, who stands between 5 feet 6 inches and 5 feet 7 inches tall, with hazel eyes, a medium build, light complexion, with possible skin discoloration on the right side of his face.
