Detectives Seeking Additional Victims of a Sexual Predator NR19116ml

Los Angeles: On April 14, 2019, officers from the Los Angeles Police Department, Mission Area, arrested 40-year-old Aaron Clark for multiple sexual assault related offenses. Two victims came forward with allegations of being assaulted by Clark between April 13 and 14, 2019.

Clark was convicted in 2003 for sexual assault after victimizing two minors. He served time in prison and was ordered to register as a sex offender under 290 PC. In 2014, Clark was convicted of child molestation and returned to prison. He was released on parole on March 15, 2017.

On April 16, 2019, the Los Angeles County District Attorney filed one count of forcible rape and one count of forcible oral copulation against Clark, who is currently being held on $1.2 million bail.

It is believed that Clark assaulted other victims. Clark may have used online dating applications or services such as Backpage to lure victims to his home in the Sylmar area, posing as a photographer or convincing victims he was in the entertainment industry.
