LOS ANGELES, CA – Police have taken a 22-year-old man into custody after he allegedly thrusted his genitals into women shopping in the San Fernando Valley.

On Thursday, police announced they were looking for someone they dubbed “Preppy Masher” who was caught on video as he approached women from behind and thrust his groin area into their ass.

Four women reported separate incidents at a shoe store, a women’s discount clothing store and a department store.

After photos of the suspect were circulated on the news, authorities said that tips from the public started coming in. The suspect was “readily recognized” and was being identified as 22-year-old Alon Lerner.

The next day, Lerner turned himself in at the LAPD Topanga station and was arrested. He’s now being held at the Van Nuys jail on suspicion of felony sexual battery and his bail has been set at $65,000.

According to authorities, Lerner lives with his proud parents and has no prior criminal history — and will now forever be known as the Preppy Masher.…

VICTORVILLE, CA – A man doing some little girl shopping was arrested after he snatched a 4-year-old girl from a cell phone store.

The incident happened last Friday as a mother was inside a Victorville cell phone store holding a young child while her 4-year-old stood nearby.

As you can see in the below surveillance video, the little girl is standing by the front door when  24-year-old Terry Ransom simply reaches in and drags the girl out by her arm.

He doesn’t get far as the girl’s mother jumped into action faster than I do when there’s free cocaine on a coffee table.

Ransom lost his grip on the girl and ran away as the mother brings the crying girl back inside the store and comforts her.

Outside, Ransom reportedly sat in traffic laughing before getting up and running away. Bystanders tackled him and held him at the scene until police arrived.

Ransom, who was possibly under the influence of drugs, was evaluated at a hospital before being booked for kidnapping and child cruelty.…

RIVERSIDE, CA – A man has been arrested after surveillance video captured him using his 1-year-old like a baseball bat to hit his girlfriend.

Last Thursday. Mike Ogden heard a man and woman arguing in the street outside of his home.

After checking his surveillance camera footage to see if it had captured anything he called police.

The video that was captured showed 27-year-old Techhoak Lim holding his 1-year-old son while arguing with his girlfriend.

Lim drops the boy on the ground then picks him back up. The argument continues and Lim can be seen throwing the boy on the ground again before picking him up to swing him like a baseball bat into his girlfriend.

He then throws the boy on the ground again and .the couple run in opposite directions as the little boy gets up and runs after his father.

“I mean it catches your breath. It takes your breath away, and then there’s anger, and then as a mother, it gets you upset. It makes you angry, you get emotional, and so that’s kind of the reaction that I had, and I’m sure the officers at the scene had,” said Detective Jerilynn Czobakowski with the Riverside Police Department.…

WOODLAND HILLS, CA – A 63-year-old US Postal Service worker was found dead in her truck on day temperatures reached 117 degrees.

Peggy Frank was a 28-year veteran with the U.S. Postal Service with only two years left until retirement.

Friday was her first day back on the job after taking two months off to recover from a broken ankle. At around 3 p.m., Frank was found unresponsive inside her USPS truck.

Despite attempts to revive her, Frank would be pronounced dead at the hospital. Although an actual cause of death has not been determined, heat exhaustion is a definite possibility.

Temperatures that day reached 117 degrees and USPS mail delivery trucks are not equipped with air conditioners.

Frank had also suffered from heat exhaustion in May of last year.

A US Postal Service spokeswoman said ‘safety is our top priority for all our employees’ and that mail carriers are always reminded to keep hydrated, wear weather-appropriate attire, bring along plenty of water and ice, and stay in the shade.

But Frank’s family says they need to do more to look out for their workers.…

FORT IRWIN, CA – Police have accused 24-year-old Rose Marie Smith with the death of her 4-year-old stepson.

Police were called to a home on June 7 on a report of an unresponsive child.

First responders would find 4-year-old Benjamin Schmittle unresponsive after allegedly having a seizure.

He was rushed to the hospital but because of the severity of his injuries, the boy was airlifted to Loma Linda University Medical Center suffering from a brain aneurysm.

Benjamin would die the next day.

Investigators were informed the injuries Benjamin suffered did not appear to be accidental.

After interviewing family members, investigators arrested Rose Marie Schmittle.

She is facing charges of murder and assault on a child causing death and being held without bail at the West Valley Detention Center.

According to his family, Benjamin lived with his father and stepmother at the time of the incident. He would have turned five years old in July.…

SAN FRANCISCO, CA — The body of a woman missing from a mental health facility was found in a stairwell at the same San Francisco hospital where another missing woman’s body was found five years ago.

On May 20th, 75-year-old Ruby Andersen went missing from a mental health facility. According to her daughter, Anderson suffered from dementia.

On Wednesday, a Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital staff member found the woman’s dead body in one of the hospital’s stairwells. An autopsy is pending.

The stairwell Anderson was found in is usually is locked, according to hospital spokeswoman Rachael Kagan, and only accessible to maintenance workers.

“We are very concerned how this could have happened,” Kagan said.

I bet she is concerned, along with the Sheriff’s Department. See, this is the second time this has happened at the hospital in the last five years.

Back in 2013, we reported on 57-year-old Lynne Spaulding, a patient at the hospital who went missing from her room. She was found dead in one of the hospital’s stairwells two weeks later.…

ONTARIO, CA – Police have a teen in custody after they say she intentionally used a vehicle to injure her boyfriend and kill her 7-month old daughter.

Sarah Gomez, 19, and her 21-year-old boyfriend were at a family gathering Monday night and had both been drinking.

They were driving home a few streets away when the two began arguing. When they were in the driveway of their home, the boyfriend got out of the vehicle while carrying the couple’s 7-month-old daughter.

According to police, that’s when Gomez, who was in the driver’s seat, intentionally drove into them.

“I believe, at this time, that the father and the child were either at the side of the car or at the back of the car, I’m not sure. It did happen near the apron of the driveway and getting into the street area,” said Ontario PD Sgt. Jeff Higbee.

The boyfriend was taken to the hospital to be treated for scrapes and bruises, but the 7-month-old was transported to the hospital where she would later die from her injuries.…

SACRAMENTO, CA – A couple is behind bars after the body of their emancipated 5-year-old girl was found inside a storage locker.

On May 11, Tyler and Averyauna Anderson, both 23, drove a rented U-Haul truck from Reno, Nevada to Sacremento.

The next day they stopped at a friend’s U-Haul storage facility and dropped off some sealed boxes.

The friend thought the boxes were suspicious, so he inspected them. Inside one of the boxes was a plastic drum that contained a duffel bag.

Inside the duffel bag, the man found the remains of a 5-year-old girl.

The storage unit owner immediately called police who began their investigation. Detectives were able to quickly identify the couple and where they lived by tracking their cellphone information and their U-Haul rental agreement.

At the couple’s apartment, investigators would discover the couple had three children. Two boys that are the couple’s biological children, and Cali — the 5-year-old-girl found in the storage unit.

Interesting to note, Cali was not Averyauna’s biological daughter. She was also the one child neighbors reported never seeing playing outside.…

SAN BRUNO, CA – By general rule, I usually don’t report on shootings like this – but in this case, I’m making an exception because I don’t think I’ll have another chance at that headline.

For those of you living under a rock, 39-year-old Nasim Aghdam opened fire at Youtube’s headquarters in Californa, injuring multiple people.

One man and two women were shot before Aghdam used the gun to fatally shoot herself.

Aghdam didn’t kill anyone, yet, but last reports listed a 36-year-old man in critical condition, a 32-year-old woman in serious condition and a 27-year-old woman in fair condition.

Initially reported as a domestic dispute, it now turns out that Aghdam was just a nutty Youtuber who was angry with Youtube’s latest policies that have seen the dramatic decline of many Youtube creators’ viewership and ad revenue.

Aghdam had multiple social media accounts, including multiple Youtube channels with videos that featured everything from her animal rights activism to workout routines.

Lately, she had been focused on her hatred of Youtube and how their new policies had severely hampered her income.…

KIRKWOOD, CA – A woman and her 7-year-old son died at Kirkwood Mountain Resort after they were buried underneath snow that had fallen from the resort’s roof.

Olga Perkovic, 50, and her 7-year-old son Aaron Goodstein had finished their last run of the day at the resort and were headed back to their condo.

They were just feet from the front door when a chunk of snow the size of a trailer slid off the roof and landed right on top of the pair, burying them under three feet of snow.

A couple of hours later, at around 6:40 p.m., a family member reported Perkovic missing when she and her son never returned from the slopes.

Rescuers spent hours searching at the ski resort near the ski lift where they had last scanned their tickets, unaware the pair had taken an alternate route back to their condo.

Perkovic and her son would not be found until 9 p.m. after a neighbor called 911 to report spotting ski gloves next to the condo and realizing the pair were buried under the snow.…

CERES, CA – A 28-year-old man fatally shot his mother after blaming her for him breaking his own video game headset, according to police.

On Thursday night, Matthew Nicholson was in his bedroom at his parent’s house when his mother, 68-year-old Lydia Nicholson, went to check on him after hearing him yelling while playing a video game.

An argument ensued that lead to Nicholson breaking his gaming headset in frustration. Nicholson then blamed his mother for the broken headset and threatened to kill her and his father.

Nicholson followed through with one half of his threat when he grabbed a handgun and fired two shots into a wall before fatally shooting his mother in the head.

He then tried to kill his 81-year-father, but the gun reportedly jammed. Nicholson’s father took that opportunity to wrestle the gun out of his son’s hands and emptying it.

Nicholson fled to his sister’s home in a neighboring town but was apprehended by police during a traffic stop. He’s currently being without bail at Stanislaus County Jail.…

ANAHEIM, CA – A man caught sexually assaulting an 11-year-old female relative on a Disneyland ride has been sentenced to 31 years in prison.

On March 12, 2015, 47-year-old Johnny Lawrence Johnson and the victim were on the Doom Buggy ride at Disneyland’s Haunted Mansion when an employee noticed the girl was performing a sex act on Johnson.

Johnson was apprehended by police and the ensuing investigation would reveal Johnson had been sexually abusing the girl for years, usually when she would visit him from Texas in the summers of 2013 and 2014.

At the time of the Disneyland incident, Johnson was living with the girl’s family.

Johnson was looking at a possible 50 years in prison after being convicted Nov 9. of four counts of lewd acts on a child younger than 14 and two counts of having sex with a child 10 or younger.

This week, Johnson was sentenced to 31 years in prison.…
