In connection with the abduction of a woman on Monday~, in East Los Angeles as she attempted to board a bus, authorities have apprehended a man. According to a news release from the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the woman was “confronted from behind” by a man as she boarded a Montebello Transit bus in the 3800 block of East Third Street at around 8:38 p.m.
The man shattered a window on the bus, pointed a revolver at the driver, and “appeared to coerce the female into” a nearby white Honda Civic, according to surveillance video showing a passenger and the bus driver trying to intervene. Once at the 60 Freeway, the man continued driving east on Third Street. Investigators discovered on Tuesday that the suspect, now identified as 24-year-old Angel Flores, had been detained by Newton Division officers of the Los Angeles Police Department several hours after the alleged kidnapping for operating a vehicle while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, according to a LASD news release.
Police discovered a replica gun in Flores’ car during his detention that they believe matched the one used in the kidnapping, according to the authorities. A short while later, LASD detectives were able to find the female victim, who was unharmed. Authorities discovered that she was dating the 24-year-old suspect after speaking with her. According to LASD, Flores was detained for kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon, and vandalism.
