11-year-old girl gang raped in Moreno Valley park bathroom

Police in Moreno Valley are searching for a 19-year-old man who's accused of joining six other gang members in the rape of an 11-year-old girl.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise says the girl was gang raped March 10 in a bathroom at Victoriano Park in Moreno Valley, some 70 miles east of Los Angeles. The case wasn't made public until Sunday, and sheriff's investigator Matt Diaz says no other details are being released.

Six juveniles have been arrested and booked at Riverside County juvenile hall for investigation of sexual assault on a child.

Detectives are still looking for the seventh man, 19-year-old Michael Sykes, of Moreno Valley. He is believed to be hiding in Los Angeles.
