Not long after Lt. Sergio Robleto took command of South Bureau Homicide--the Los Angeles Police Department's biggest and busiest murder squad--one of his detectives had a heart attack right before his eyes. The detective was in Robleto's office complaining about stress. It was 1993 and murder was rampant in South Bureau, which covers the city's southern end. By year's end, a record 411 killings had been reported.

A 15-year-old girl who was kidnaped and repeatedly raped while being held captive for a week in a South-Central Los Angeles house managed to get away early Saturday--only to be raped again by a man who was in a car she had flagged down while seeking help, authorities said. The Thousand Oaks teen-ager was finally rescued about 2 a.m., and one of her alleged attackers was arrested by two park rangers in Rose Hill Park northeast of downtown, Los Angeles police said. The girl was treated at White Memorial Hospital and released to her parents, who had reported her missing a week ago. Antonio Diaz, 18, of Los Angeles, who police said was one of three men in a car the victim had flagged down after escaping from the house, was arrested on suspicion of rape and was being held in lieu of $10,000 bail, authorities said.

Two police officers were hurt and 11 people were arrested in a police raid on an unlicensed Hollywood nightclub that turned into a mini-riot. The club, on the second floor of a building on Santa Monica Boulevard, was packed with teen-agers, many of whom were seen drinking on the street, Lt. Sergio Robleto said. He said the club was apparently one of many throughout the city that open their doors without obtaining the proper licenses and change locations frequently to stay ahead of authorities.
