The search is on for a man accused of raping a 14-year-old girl. The rape occurred on the 17000 block of Main Street in La Puente the night of Jan. 2.

The victim said the suspect was visiting ex-coworkers at her apartment complex when he started talking to her. He allegedly began walking with her before reportedly dragging her behind a wall and attacking her. He then fled on Main St.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male possibly of Guatemalan descent, between 18 to 22 years old, standing 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet to 7 inches tall, weighing between 150 to 160 pounds.

The suspect has black hair with a "faux-hawk" hairstyle. The ex-coworkers knew the suspect only by the name "Michael."

Anyone with information related to the case should call the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department Special Victims Bureau at (877) 710-5273.
