The sixteen-year-old girl was transported to a local hospital for a medical evaluation and her family was notified and joined the victim at the hospital. Officers and detectives conducted interviews and area checks at two locations the crime was reported to have occurred and the area where the victim had been dropped off, according to Sgt. Darin Ryburn of the Burbank Police Department.

“We have a lot of interviews to do and the investigation is active,” commented Ryburn. “We did a canvass of the areas involved and we are asking for anyone in the reported areas who might have noticed something to please contact the Burbank Police at 818-238-3000.”
