Two men were arrested today (Wednesday) in connection with the kidnapping and sexual assault of a woman in Huntington Beach.

According to the HBPD, the suspects are indentified as Florentino Bacilio, 47, and Angel Evaristo, 30.

The attack occurred on Sunday, June 6, in the downtown area of Huntington Beach. The woman, who sustained “numerous injuries,” was released by her assailants on Pacific Coast Highway, south of Harbor Boulevard.  A passing motorist saw her and contacted the HBPD. She was taken to a local hospital for treatment and has since been discharged.

After what police called “a tireless and non-stop investigation,” detectives located the suspects in Long Beach and made the arrests.

Police say there’s no known connection between the suspects and the victim and no other suspects are being sought. The case is being referred to the Orange County District Attorney’s office for prosecution.

Anyone who may have information relating to the crimes is asked to call the HBPD Hotline at (714) 375-5066.
