1700 W Garvey Ave sexual assault suspect

On August 3, 2017, the Monterey Park Police Department arrested a male, later identified as Angel Cano, in connection with a alleged sexual assault involving two victims.

Cano approached the victims in front of a CVS in the City of Alhambra and told them he would pay them to go to his hair salon to try some new hair products. The suspect transported the victims to the hair salon in his vehicle, a grey Toyota Rav4, from the City of Alhambra. Once at the location in the 1700 block of West Garvey Avenue in the City of Monterey Park, the victims were allegedly assaulted. The victims are both males, 16 and 18 years of age.

Cano, a 35-year old resident of Alhambra, was arraigned on August 7, 2017 in Alhambra Superior Court on eight counts of sexual battery and sexual penetration. Cano is currently being held on $1 million bail, and is being housed at the Los Angeles County Men’s Jail.

The Monterey Park Police Department is asking for anyone who has had a similar encounter with the suspect to contact Detective Denise Ferrari at 626-307-1241 or dferrari@montereypark.ca.gov.
