    CA - Michael Ikeler for abduction, rape of toddler, Gardena, April 2015


    Nearly three weeks after a 2-year-old girl was kidnapped from a carwash in Gardena, police on Wednesday that a Torrance man had been arrested in the crime, which authorities said included sexual assault.

    Michael David Ikeler, 36, was taken into custody a week after the April 2 kidnapping.

    The girl’s disappearance from a self-serve carwash at 14929 Western Ave. about 5 p.m. April 2. launched a massive search that police called an “unprecedented response.”

    Nearly 2 1/2 hours later, the toddler was found about 8 miles away in an empty, dark parking lot in Cudahy. She was hospitalized with unspecified injuries, police said at the time.

    I kept searching for this here but never found it.
    I was sure it was here and I was just missing it.
    I'm glad it's here now. I'm glad she was found alive.

    Thank goodness he was arrested!!! Keep him locked up FOREVER. This case made my blood boil and my stomach turn, and my eyes wouldn't stop tearing up when I read about the baby's reaction to the male police officers, covering her eyes and only trusting the woman to help her. That poor, innocent girl and her family. And this man has done it before.

    "Over two years ago, on January 11, 2013, Ikeler was living in Lucerne and was booked into the Lake County Jail on three counts, including inflicting corporal injury on an intimate partner and a sexual incident involving a minor."

    The greatest thing you'll ever learn, is just to love, and be loved in return.

    A woman testifying in the trial of a Torrance man accused of abducting and sexually assaulting a 2-year-old Gardena girl wept in court Thursday as she recalled finding the toddler abandoned and naked in a parking lot...

    As the trial has continued this week, a DNA expert testified that semen found all over the girlís body was Ikelerís...

    Renteria said that moments before the commotion and discovery of the toddler, he noticed a white 2007 to 2010 Nissan Altima or Maxima pull erratically into the parking lot, back up near the trash container, and dump what he thought was a bag of trash.

    Gardena police later found surveillance video of a Nissan Altima leaving the carwash and released information to the public about the vehicle.

    Ikeler, who owned such a car, was arrested a few days later following a tip to police.

    Jurors took about an hour Friday to find a Torrance man guilty of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a 2-year-old girl from a Gardena car wash, dismissing — and even laughing — at his story that an unidentified drug dealer named Flaco committed the crime.

    Michael David Ikeler, 38, stared straight ahead, showing no reaction as a Torrance Superior Court clerk read the jury’s verdict, convicting him of one count of lewd act upon a child under the age of 14 and two counts of sexual penetration of a child under age 10...

    Ikeler faces 40 years to life in prison when Judge Eric Taylor sentences him on March 1.
