The gang rape of an 18-year-old girl in Baldwin Park Monday morning is getting lots of attention from local media this morning. Television trucks are parked outside the Baldwin Park Police Department, but police are saying little.
Apparently cops have no suspect descriptions, and don’t know much about the teen-aged victim…
Thanks to a news tip Monday morning on the Trib hotline we heard about this story. But, BP officials weren’t so keen to confirm. A watch commander even went so far as to deny anything took place overnight.
There continue to be rumors that the City Council wants the PD to clamp down on issuing crime reports — so as to make Baldwin Park appear safe. If the city officials think that not issuing bulletins about gang rapes makes the city appear safer, their judgement should be seriously questioned.
