Police search for rapist in Orange County
Police are searching for a man who allegedly raped a woman after offering her a ride near Santiago Canyon College in Orange.
The woman was waiting for a bus about 11 a.m. Monday at Hewes Street and East Chapman Avenue when the man offered her a ride to the college, said Sgt. Dan Adams of the Orange Police Department.
The woman got into the man’s car, and he drove to a nearby restaurant parking lot that was secluded from the street, where he allegedly raped her. He did not use a weapon, Adams said.
The man then dropped off the woman at the college and drove away. Video captured at a gas station near the bus stop showed him wearing bluejeans and a long-sleeved black shirt, Adams said. He was driving a gold, tan or light brown two-door car, possibly a Saturn.
He is described as black, 20 to 30 years old, 5 feet 10 to 6 feet tall and between 150 to 180 pounds, Adams said. Police have few clues.
“We don’t know anything about him,” Adams said. “We are hoping for the public’s help on this one.”
Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Aaron Towner at (714) 744-7456.
