On some windless summer nights in South Los Angeles, Steve Jennings stands beside the asphalt basketball courts at South Park. He is not waiting to play, although there was a time when that was practically all he did. Now, he lingers on the sidelines, transfixed by the games of neighborhood buddies who play, hoping to escape, for a while, the hardships of poverty. When the last shot ricochets off the wooden backboard, the playground becomes a chorus of chatter.

A 16-year-old robbery suspect who was being held at a private psychiatric hospital slipped out of his room over the weekend and raped a 14-year-old girl, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office alleged. The boy, who is being charged as an adult and is identified in court papers as Jonathan Aguilar, is accused of rape, forced oral copulation and burglary in connection with the Saturday attack, said spokeswoman Jane Robison. Aguilar is being held on $1-million bail. The boy was previously arrested on suspicion of robbery and was in juvenile custody but was later transferred to a county psychiatric facility because of an unspecified issue during his custody, according to sources familiar with the investigation.
