L.A. County Board of Supervisors (motion by Knabe) Offers $10,000 Reward For LB Serial Rapist...On Top Of $25,000 Reward Offered By LB City Council
(Sept. 11, 2002) -- At its September 10 meeting, the L.A. County Board of Supervisors (motion by Supervisor Knabe) voted 5-0 to authorize a $10,000 reward for the arrest and conviction of the LB rapist.
The Board of Supervisors' reward is on top of a $25,000 reward (previously reported by LBReport.com) offered by the LB City Council at its Sept. 3 meeting.
The serial rapist, who has primarily victimized LB women, is linked by LBPD to eight rapes with DNA evidence and police believe he is responsible for as many as 16 additional assaults in LB. Sometimes called the "Belmont Shore" or "East Long Beach" rapist, he has attacked primarily in LB but police believe he's also struck in Huntington Beach, Los Alamitos and Seattle since 1996.
