Vicious Beating of Cospalyer Investigated by San Diego Police
Chris Smith / 3 years ago
San Diego Harbor Unified District Police have recently released a press statement addressing the arrest of a man who may be connected to a brutally beaten Comi-Con cosplaying attendee:
“Harbor Police arrested a 29-year-old man early Sunday morning, July 27th in a hotel at 333 West Harbor Drive. He was booked into San Diego County Jail at 11:20 am on charges of sexual contact with a minor and contributing to the delinquency of minor. The victim, a juvenile female, was transported to a hospital for evaluation and treatment. The Harbor Police Investigations Unit is handling the incident. This investigation is ongoing.” Comicsbeat
Due to the victim being a minor, her name and information has been withdrawn.
The information to this crime has been spread throughout Tumblr and Reddit after the young girl, dressed as Roger Rabbit, was found bleeding on the side of the road. Comicsbeat has been in contact with the girls parents, the public account of the situation reads:
“IF YOU WENT TO SAN DIEGO COMIC CON OR KNOW ANYONE WHO HAS, PLEASE READ.
One of my dearest friends was found on the side of the road, unconscious and bloody. She was wearing this cosplay on the day it happened. She was last seen with friends when she ran off after a disagreement. Please, please, please, if you have ANY information or saw her anywhere, contact her mother. The full information is down below. This isn’t okay and it’s sickening to know that this happened at a place people truly can enjoy themselves. Please spread the word.
”I just received a call from the San Diego Police Department and my daughter REDACTED aka REDACTED was found on the side of the road covered in blood with no ID unconscious. They are unsure what happened to her. My husband is on his way to the police station and then the hospital. If you have any information on what happened to her please send me a facebook message or call me at REDACTED. Thank you in advance”. -REDACTED” Comicsbeat
This is obviously quite a serious criminal issue and is a heartbreaking reminder that people not always safe – even when in large crowds.
Stay tuned to eTeknix and we shall report when any more information may arise.
