L.A. man arrested a second time on suspicion of sexual assault, impersonation of police officer
A 29-year-old Los Angeles man was being held on $1-million bail Friday after his second arrest in less than a month on suspicion of sexually assaulting women while impersonating a law enforcement officer, authorities said.
Pedram Mehrian was being held by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department after being arrested Wednesday on a rape charge in connection with an incident last month in Rosemead.
Mehrian previously had been arrested June 2 by Los Angeles police in a similar alleged sexual assault of a woman in West Los Angeles.
Mehrian posted bail in that case and was released, facing a July 1 hearing.
Detectives are also investigating a third similar assault, in May in West Los Angeles.
