WHITTIER : Donations Sought for Family of Rape Victim

July 28, 1994

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department has begun a fund-raising drive to help the family of an 8-year-old girl who was raped earlier this month.

The family, which includes eight children, moved after the incident, said Detective Dan Scott, who is coordinating the campaign.

"We want to collect at least $1,500 to offset those costs," he said. "And whatever else we collect will also go to them."

The girl was raped in an apartment building carport on Santa Gertrudes Avenue on July 16. Lawrence Salvador Martinez, 39, of Whittier has been charged with kidnaping, rape and child molestation. He has pleaded not guilty.

Donations can be mailed to: Juvenile Investigations Bureau Child Abuse Detail, c/o Fund No. 210, 11515 Colima Road, D-106, Whittier 90604.
