LA authorities ID 2 disabled abuse suspects

Posted: Updated:

MONTEREY PARK, Calif. (AP) - Los Angeles County authorities say they have identified two of the suspects recorded on video sexually assaulting profoundly disabled women.

Sheriff's Sgt. Dan Scott said Friday that Los Angeles police officers recognized the men after detectives went public with artist sketches and photos of four men.

The images were gleaned from over 100 hours of video that an unknown individual delivered to sheriff's headquarters in suburban Monterey Park last March.

The videos show at least 10 men sexually assaulting physically and mentally disabled women, some of them in diapers.

One suspect is serving time in state prison for felony sex counts and abuse counts. Scott says the man worked at a Los Angeles care facility.
