Officers responded at about noon to the 18200 block of Kingsdale Avenue “regarding reports of a male sexually assaulting an elderly female,” according to Torrance police Sgt. Ronald Harris.
“Officers quickly arrived at the location and detained a suspect matching the description in the vicinity,” he said. “The suspect was subsequently positively identified as Duncan Walton, a black male 35 years of age, and a transient of Torrance.”
Walton was arrested on suspicion of attempted sexual assault and kidnapping, Harris said.
There was no immediately word on the woman’s condition.
