One thought on “SAPD seeks public assistance in finding more victims of alleged rapist”
  1. “Capacete picked up a female on Harbor Blvd”…… Hmmmmm

    I know an aspiring Santa Ana Mayor who was ordered by the SAPD to assume a spread-eagle position on the Harbor Boulevard’s sidewalk while COPs were looking for a gun in his car based on allegation by several female who war looking for an employment there.

    It looks that the SAPD was affirmative this time.
