Los Angeles police have provided an update in their investigation of the beating and sexual assault of a woman near the Venice Beach pier recently.

According to the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), Pacific Division officers responded to the area of Anchorage Street and Ocean Front Walk around 6:50 a.m. on Tuesday, September 8 in response to a female who had suffered severe injuries in an assault that occurred between 2 and 5 a.m. According to the LAPD, the victim was found unconscious outside the beach restroom lying naked from the waist down.

Shacked went on to report additional info the outlet gathered from locals.

“The woman sexually [assaulted] is said to be a 29 year old college student/graduate,” Shacked wrote. “The attack may have started behind the Arbor store, and ended at the restrooms just south of pier, where she was further beaten, then dragged to the backside of the restrooms and left for dead.”
