Police advised residents to be aware of surroundings and to avoid becoming distracted by electronic devices.

Stay in well lit, populated areas when alone, be alert when going to and from a vehicle, and notify the police if something or someone looks suspicious, police said.

    BIG G, that was my first thought. My 14 year old wouldn’t be out at midnight on the streets of Oakland or anywhere else for that matter! Where are her parents…??

  4. JZ says:

    Yeah, I don’t know many parents that would let their 14yr old out and about the streets of Oakland around midnight! And, in the Bancroft area, c’mon! I used to work near bancroft & international, and it’s no joke.. c’omn parents!!

    Do you mean that she was hopefully human?

    No matter how unfortunate her family situation or living arrangements, she doesn’t deserved to be abducted and raped. Further, there is no race, religion, political or socioeconomic class where rape of anyone is acceptable.- and hurting a child is even more despicable. The most disturbing thing about the internet is that it gives a platform to hostile/racist/losers like eye 4 eye who clearly have a lot of misdirected negativity. Before the internet, we would not have heard from this person. And that would have been a better use of everyone’s time.

    Enough about the girl and her parents. How about the attackers? The physical descriptions taken together along with the blue Lexus should sprak somebody’s memory. Come on people…look around. These guys are driving around OUR city. They are not your “friends” if they degrade your community with their actions. They do not deserve anyone’s loyalty or protection. Step up and Speak up!
