Hollywood Police Investigating Reported Rape

Detectives are investigating a rape that reportedly occurred in a car just after midnight Saturday.

Hollywood detectives Wednesday were investigating a reported rape that occurred over the weekend.

The alleged rape was reported just after midnight Saturday in the 1500 block of Cassil Place, in a car, possibly a white Chevrolet sedan, according to a Los Angeles police detective.

Suspect descriptions were not available, the detective told Patch.

Police also said the victim might have been intoxicated.

Detectives were trying to reach the victim for a second interview, the detective said, adding that Hollywood residents should always be aware of their surroundings.

Earlier this month, a woman was raped in a Hollywood parking lot near the intersection of Yucca Street and Whitley Avenue. In January, police arrested a man for allegedly raping a woman near the intersection of Franklin Avenue and Grace Avenue.
