    Did ELB/Belmont Shore Rapist Try To Strike Tuesday Night in Huntington Beach? HBPD Investigating Burglary/Assault On Woman in 70's E. of Seal Beach Naval Weapons Stn.; She Fights Him Off

    (August 14, 2002) -- Did the ELB/Belmont Shore rapist try to strike last night in Huntington Beach?

    The Huntington Beach Police Dept. is looking into that possibility in the wake of a burglary/assault on a woman in her early 70's in her home just east of the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station on Tuesday night shortly before midnight.

    In a written release, HBPD said its detectives "are investigating the possibility this could be connected with the Long Beach Belmont Shore Rapist."

    HBPD says that on August 13 at approximately 11:36 PM, the woman heard a noise in her home. As she dialed 911, she was grabbed from behind.

    She struggled with a man she described as having a dark complexion. She fought him off and he fled the house.

    The victim re-called 911 and HBPD responded, setting up a perimeter and using K-9ís to search the area. They followed a trail but eventually lost the scent. The victim was treated by paramedics and released, bruised but not seriously injured HBPD said.

    HBPD asks anyone with information about this crime to call the Huntington Beach Police Detective Bureau at (714) 375-5066.

    And we remind readers that LBPD has advised LB residents to keep their doors locked and windows closed and to call 911 immediately on hearing or seeing anything suspicious. .
