Search Underway For Sexual Predator Who Targeted Girl, 17, In North Hills

NORTH HILLS (CBS) — Authorities are looking for a sexual predator who grabbed a 17-year-old girl at the intersection of Plummer Street and Haskell Avenue in North Hills earlier this week.

Authorities say the victim was walking near Monroe High School at 11:30 a.m. Tuesday when a compact red car pulled up next to her.

A male passenger exited the vehicle, removed his shirt and used it to cover up the license plate, according to police.

He then removed the rest of his clothes and grabbed the victim from behind. He eventually got back into the vehicle, which was being driven by another man, when she screamed.

Authorities believe the suspect has approached several girls in the San Fernando Valley in recent months and may be responsible for incidents that took place near Arleta High School.
