Officer Officer Miguel Schiappapietra, 28, was arrested Saturday at his home in Castaic, Calif., about forty miles northwest of downtown Los Angeles, KTLA reports in the video above.
Schiappapietra allegedly lured the two girls, both under the age of 10, into his home, police said. He was booked on two counts of lewd acts with a child and expected to appear in court Tuesday.
Schiappapietra, a six-year veteran of the force, reportedly moved into the neighborhood with his wife and three young children just five weeks ago.
“You know, having children of my own and knowing there are other children in this neighborhood…I had no idea it was going on down there. It’s very disturbing,” resident Tim Rossi said to CBS.
Neighbors told CBS that the officer was always friendly and seemed like a family man.
Schiappapietra is now on paid administrative leave, pending the LAPD and criminal investigation, the Los Angeles Times reports.
He is being held on $100,000 bail. If Schiappapietra posts bail, he will be assigned to his home until the investigations are complete.
DAYTON, IA – The search for 15-year-old Kathlynn Shepard is still ongoing after she and a 12-year-old girl were both abducted by 42-year-old Michael Klunder, a registered sex offender who committed suicide hours after the younger girl escaped.
Authorities say Klunder abducted the two girls after they got off a school bus on Monday, luring the girls into his truck with the promise of them making money cutting grass. He then took the girls to a hog confinement farm about 15 miles south of Dayton.
There’s not a lot of details regarding what happened once the girls were at the farm, but the younger girl somehow managed to escape Klunder and make a run for it. She ended up at a neighboring farm where two men found the girl as she was crawling to them underneath a wire fence.
She was wearing shorts and a T-shirt, but had no shoes. She also had a thick zip tie cable around one of her wrists that one of the men cut free before grabbing a gun and running towards the hog confinement facility. He didn’t find anything there aside from tire tracks left by Klunder. Shepard was nowhere to be found.
The 12-year-old was taken to a Fort Dodge hospital and later released while police used the information she had given them to track down Klunder and, hopefully, Shepard. Authorities haven’t said what relationship the girls have to one another.
At around 8 p.m., authorities would find Klunder dead inside his Stratford home, where he had reportedly hanged himself. However, there were no signs of Shepard. A day later, and police still have not located her.
Police are searching where the girls were abducted, the rural area from where the 12-year-old escaped, and Klunder’s home. Authorities are searching a 75- to 100-square-mile area by air, water and land, and have deployed canine units. Volunteers also are conducting a foot patrol of the area and a recent report states the search has been expanded to the nearby Des Moines River.
This search wouldn’t even be going on had Klunder been in prison where he belongs. In 1992, Klunder kidnapped a 21-year old woman. He would be convicted of third-degree kidnapping, sentenced to 11 years in prison and placed on the Iowa Sex Offender Registry.
A year year earlier, Klunder was charged with kidnapping two Charles City 3-year-old girls who were later found alive and unharmed in a trash can 50 miles away. He pleaded guilty to two counts of third-degree kidnapping and willful injury in that case. But for some reason, he only served half of the 41 years he was to serve in prison, and was released in Feb. 25, 2011.
“It is confusing for the public, and especially for victims, when they hear that someone has a 40 year sentence and in 20 years they’re walking out the door,” said Fred Scaletta, Iowa Department of Corrections spokesman.
And that’s not all. Police in nearby Evansdale say they will look for a connection between Klunder and the kidnappings of Lyric Cook and Elizabeth Collins, the two cousins we reported on last July who went missing after going on a bike ride, and whose dead bodies would be found by hunters five months later.
ZIMBABWE – A 29-year-old Bulawayo woman from Matshobana suburb got the shock of her life when she woke up in the morning and realised that her private parts were missing, it is alleged.
Chipo Sibanda reportedly learnt the hard way in the early hours of 29 April when she visited the toilet but could not urinate upon discovering that her vagina had mysteriously sealed.
The woman is said to have nearly collapsed when she noticed that her ‘most sweetness spot’ had mysteriously sealed. However, a ZImbabwean online publication says it has learnt that Chipo was in the habit of sleeping with married men – a claim which was confirmed by the alleged hubby-snatcher. It is reported that Chipo approached one of the women whose husband had allegedly ‘strayed’ to Chipo’s ‘honey jar’.
A source who stays in Bulawayo’s Matshobana suburb where there incident reportedly took place, said a woman popularly known as Mai Tawanda had previously warned Chipo to stay away from her husband. The source said after the spine-chilling incident, the ‘vaginaless’ woman approached Mai Tawanda and begged for forgiveness.
“She didn’t have a choice in this case but to approach Mai Tawanda and apologise. No one remains calm upon realising that her sexual organ is missing. If she had not approached Mai Tawanda we could be talking about something else,” said a source close to Chipo.
It is reported that Mai Tawanda first thrashed Chipo but much to the surprise of everyone, the bashed woman did not cry. The alleged husband-snatcher was saved by Mai Tawanda’s sister who had been summoned to hear the confession.
“She was set free 3 hours after the beating. She made a promise to Mai Tawanda that she would never see her husband or even come near him. That is when she was told to go to the toilet and check if her organ was back,” she said.
After several attempts to get hold of Chipo, our news crew eventually managed to hook up with the woman who openly revealed that she had learnt a big lesson.
“I am sorry to all women I have wronged. It wasn’t my intention to break their marriages. It (the disappearance of her organ) was so scary and the thought that I couldn’t piss was frightening. I could feel that my bladder was full but I couldn’t do anything,” she said.
Efforts to get a comment from the much dreaded Mai Tawanda proved futile by the time of going to press.
Scandale Fritz, 16, Kenneth Brown, 15, and Justin Applewhite, 16, were all ordered held in lieu of $900,000 bail in a hearing today before Criminal Court Judge James Brown, said Cook County state’s attorney spokeswoman Tandra Simonton. The three were charged as adults.
The assaults took place about 3:30 p.m. Dec. 15 in Fritz’s home in the 400 block of West 60th Place in the Englewood neighborhood, according to Chicago police records.
The girl had gone to Fritz’s house on 60th Place that afternoon to talk to him, and when she went inside, she saw Brown, with a gun in his pocket, prosecutors said. Fritz took the girl downstairs in the house and after she declined his demands for sex, he raped and sodomized her, prosecutors said.
Brown and Applewhite came down to the basement, and Fritz demanded the girl have sex with the other two boys, prosecutors said. At first, the girl refused, but she saw that Brown had a gun in his pocket, and so they sexually assaulted her and forced her to perform sex acts on them.
Fritz videotaped the sex acts, including Brown holding a gun during sex, and all three of the boys shouting gang slogans, prosecutors said. All three of the boys are visible in the video, with Fritz entering the frame when he turns the camera toward himself.
The day after the assaults, the girl told someone about the attacks, and a police report was made and the girl was treated and examined at a hospital. On Dec. 17, the video was posted on Brown’s Facebook page, and then on all three boys’ Facebook pages, prosecutors said.
Fritz admitted to investigators he made the tape, prosecutors said.
Fritz and Brown, also of the 400 block of West 60th Place, are co-defendants in a previous, unrelated robbery and aggravated battery case, according to prosecutors. Brown also is on 18 months probation in a Nov. 28, 2012, unlawful use of a weapon case, prosecutors said. Brown is due back in court on that case May 22.
Applewhite, of the 500 block of East 80th Street, has no publishable criminal background, prosecutors said.
The three are due back in court June 6.
It was not known why it took until May to charge the three teens.
Amanda Brennan, 24, was arrested Friday on two counts of luring a child and a count of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, according to a Las Vegas Metro police arrest report.
According to police, the parents of a male student at Foothill High School accused the English teacher of suspicious activity with their son.
In the arrest report, the parents’ suspicions were raised when Brennan picked up the boy at their gated neighborhood on Wednesday. The parents, as police were told in the report, did not know Brennan was coming to see the teen and denied permission for the boy to go out with her. Still, the boy and Brennan left together from the neighborhood, according to the report.
Police also stated in the report Brennan returned the boy home past curfew.
Detectives were also looking into the boy’s mobile phone records, which showed about 1,000 text messages between him and a number belonging to Brennan on May 1-9, according to the arrest report.
“We used a variety of different information and sources to determine that a crime was committed. At this point I won’t detail those messages what they are due to the fact they are in the justice system,” said Captain Mitch MaCiszak with the Clark County School Police Department.
Police, in the report, visited the boy at the school on Friday. It was then, in the report, the boy admitted Brennan picked him up at his home two days before despite his parents denying him permission to go out with her.
The boy, in the report, also admitted to a romantic relationship between him and Brennan. He told police in the report they loved each other and there were only two times they kissed.
The boy told police, in the report, that the two only cuddled in the back of her vehicle on the night he was denied permission to go out.
Police, in the report, then interviewed Brennan and admitted that she loved the teen and knew the relationship was wrong.
Brennan, in the report, confessed to another time when he picked up the teen without his parents’ permission. In that instant, she said to police in the report, they sat in the front seat of her vehicle and kissed.
Brennan was booked into Clark County Detention Center on $20,000 bail, according to jail records.
According to the Orem Department of Public Safety two sisters, ages 14 and 16, were walking near 880 N. State St. in Orem Wednesday afternoon when a Hispanic man pulled alongside them and asked if they needed money. He handed the girls $5 and a phone number and told them to call if they wanted more money.
The girls told their father about what had happened and he had the older of the girls call the number. The man who answered offered the girl $30 to have sex with him and said he had a friend he would like to bring with him.
When the father called police detectives from the Orem Police Department set up a sting to catch the suspects. Lt. Craig Martinez with the Orem Department of Public Safety said it took several hours to set up the sting but that the men agreed to meet the girls and bring $30 and some condoms. The two girls met with the men at Orem Junior High School and when the suspects arrived they were arrested.
Orem residents Alexander Navidad-Hernandez, 27, and Javier Santos-Jacobo, 27, were arrested and booked into the Utah County Jail on charges of enticing a minor and sexual solicitation.
Martinez said they don’t believe there are other suspects but that if any other girls have been contacted by Navidad-Hernandez or Santos-Jacobo to call Orem police at (801) 229-7070.

The latest social networking app “Bang With Friends” or (BWF) now avails its users to “hook up” on-the-go. Launching a new free mobile version for the iPhone and Android. If you happened to have missed the buzz about this app, it allows users to browse their list of Facebook friends and click on those whom they’d most like to have sex with.
We at FTK are desperate to figure out why you’d need an app for that? If they’re on your friend list and you’ve always fantasized about getting nasty with them, wouldn’t you just message or poke them?
Anyway, here’s how BWF works: Once you sign in on FB and agree to allow your profile to be viewed publicly, a screen comes up filled with photos of your FB friends. But either FB or the app aren’t so smart as to properly filter suitable matches, because when this editor checked it out, I saw my cousins, my DAD, the husbands of my friends–a whole lotta’ potential drama—Match.com or eHarmony it ain’t.
Users can see male or female friends as they choose–the site was originally only made so viewers could see the opposite sex–it’s become more inclusionary. Once you’re in, you’re able to click the red “down to bang” button and a message alert goes to the chosen friend. If he/she chooses to accept, you’re sent an email from BWF with the subject line reading “It’s bangin’ time”!
The new mobile app adds the ability to hang out with a friend first instead of explicitly expressing an interest to “bang.” Also exclusive to the mobile app is the option to “undo a bang” if you’re “too drunk and selected the wrong friend.”
The creators are three college aged males (big shocker), who prefer to keep their identities private. Produced in a scant two hours, during what the young men say was imbued with lots of Red Bull and vodka, the creators told The Daily Beast, “Sex should be something you’re expressive about, that you’re comfortable with, and if there’s a beautiful woman or a handsome man that you’re interested in, you shouldn’t hold back. We’re just giving you closer access to knowing the truth.”
It seems the app is the founder’s answer to traditional online dating sites. “What a lot of people want is just to skip all the shit and get to the sex.”
Whether it’s due to sheer fear, some scant bit of trepidation, or simply pride, for those FB users who’ve never contacted their friends openly for sex, BWF now has more than 900,000 members after just 90 days, and has matched over 200,000 couples—giving even more meaning to the term “friends with benefits.”
Update below: Mario Hunt, an assistant teacher and coach at Cahokia High School, is accused of having sexual contact with a minor — while he knew he was HIV positive. The alleged abuse, police say, stems back to 2011 when the victim was seventeen years old.
It’s unclear exactly what his connection is to the victim, but charges say that Hunt, 35, “holds a position of trust authority or supervision” in relation to the minor.
Because he knowingly exposed the student to the virus, he is facing — in addition to criminal sexual assault charge — a transmission of HIV charge as well.
Officials say there could be more victims.
It appears that Hunt, who was an assistant track coach, has been placed on leave.
The charges from the St. Clair County Circuit Court, full document below, say that somewhere between January and June of 2011, Hunt, who lived in Cahokia, “knowingly committed an act of sexual conduct with a male minor.” Those felony charges include oral sex and more.
The charges are all the more serious because he allegedly abused the minor knowing he was HIV positive (though the transmission charges don’t mean that the minor was necessarily infected).
He was arrested yesterday with a $300,000 bail.
KTVI (Channel 2) reports that two additional victims have come forward and that police are also aware of inappropriate social media postings:
And police believe the crimes may have happened at school — during school hours.
Update, 10:30 a.m.: Daily RFT got in touch with Cahokia School District Superintendent Art Ryan, who tells us that school officials learned of the criminal charges yesterday afternoon.
Ryan, however, says that the school was in the process of investigating a complaint of Hunt’s inappropriate social media behavior and texting, brought forward by a mother.
When school officials learned that there was a criminal investigation, they suspended Hunt, he adds.
“We’re shocked,” he says, noting that the HIV-related charges are especially upsetting. “The whole situation is sad and disturbing.”
He says he is not aware of additional complaints from other students but plans to discuss this with the police chief today. He also says he will be sending out a notice to parents today updating them on the situation.

An instructional aide in the special education department at Leuzinger High School in Lawndale has been charged with molesting a 16-year-old mentally challenged student in a campus stairwell, sheriff’s deputies said today.
The entire alleged crime was captured on school surveillance video, deputies said.
Juan Carlos Gutierrez, 60, a former employee union official, was arrested at 5:30 p.m. Friday following an investigation that began three days earlier. Deputies said Gutierrez accompanied the girl into a stairwell on May 7 and fondled her intimate parts over her clothing.
Students who witnessed the “inappropriate touching” reported it to the school’s principal. One student recorded the incident on his cellphone, but deleted it, said Sgt. Dan Scott of the Sheriff’s Department’s Special Victims Unit.
Scott said Gutierrez allegedly took advantage of a teenager with the mental capacity of an elementary school student.
“He’s been there over 20 years,” Scott said. “With this type of behavior, we definitely want to explore the possibility of additional victims being out there. “
Detectives from the Special Victims Unit investigated the report. Gutierrez was charged with three misdemeanor counts of annoying or molesting a child. Scott said state law has provisions for molestation based on the victim’s age, but not dealing with mental capacity.
Gutierrez is a former president of the Centinela Valley Union High School District’s California School Employees Association, a union representing custodians, classroom aides and other nonteaching staff.
He was released from jail Saturday after posting $60,000 bail. He was not home this morning when a reporter visited his apartment, and his daughter hung up the phone during a call.
Centinela Valley district officials scheduled a news conference for later this morning.
In a statement today, the district said deputies at the Sheriff’s Department’s Lawndale service center were contacted immediately after the report was made to school officials.
“Although the district is not at liberty to disclose information that is under investigation, please rest assured that all steps have been taken to ensure the care and safety of the student involved as well as the safety and well-being of all students,” the statement said.
Superintendent Jose Fernandez said the district “will not tolerate any individual who compromised the safety of our students. “
“The district responded to the report by taking immediate action to report the incident to law enforcement and
to remove the individual from the campus,” Fernandez said in a statement. “The district is cooperating fully with law enforcement. “
In a statement, Leuzinger High School Principal Mike Ono said, “We want to reassure the Leuzinger parents, students, and community that student care is our foremost concern. We are working with staff and students to address any concerns. “
