*VIDEO* #LASD Carson detectives seeking public’s assistance in locating Assault Susp, 900 Blk of W. Sepulveda Blvd.

Mother of Six Becomes the Victim of a Violent Attack at Work
A convenience store clerk was brutally slashed in the face and abdomen in the early morning hours of Saturday, June 16, 2018. 

On Saturday, June 16, 2018, at approximately 5:56 a.m., the suspect entered the store of the gas station and, after making a small purchase, asked the clerk, 53-year-old Darlecia D’Andrade, if he could use the restroom.  He entered the restroom but exited seconds later asking that she fix the toilet. 

Prompted by the suspect’s request, the clerk entered the restroom as the suspect followed her inside.  While both were inside the restroom, the suspect suddenly attacked the clerk, slashing her across her face and abdomen with an unknown object.  The suspect ran out of the store and entered a red, 4-door sedan with a sunroof.  The front grill of the sedan had vertical slats.  The vehicle possibly has a sticker or chipped paint on driver’s side door frame.  He was last seen driving away south on Vermont Avenue. 

The suspect is described as a male Hispanic, approximately 20 years old, dark hair, 5-11, between 160 – 170 pounds, wearing a black and green hat with the phrase “I (marijuana leaf) weed”, red t-shirt, and black pants. 

The clerk received significant injuries to her face and abdomen.  She was transported a local hospital where she was treated for her injuries and released. 

The victim is a mother of six, and since the brutal attack she has been unable to return to work.

The clerk had never seen the suspect before, and there is no known motive for the attack. 

Carson Station detectives are seeking of the public’s help in identifying the Aggravated Assault suspect, depicted in the video and photographs.
