LOS ANGELES (AP) — A man suspected of raping a mentally disabled woman aboard a Los Angeles transit bus during rush hour was arrested Friday, authorities said.

The suspect, whose name and age weren’t immediately released, was booked for investigation of rape, said Sgt. Dan Scott of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.

Authorities said a man boarded the bus with the woman in suburban Culver City, followed her to the back of the bus, and forced himself on her late Wednesday afternoon.

A lone witness tried to alert the bus driver that the rape was happening, but it continued for about 10 minutes until the man stopped and exited the bus.

The 18-year-old woman has the mental capacity of a 10-year-old, Scott said. After the attack, she reported it to the driver, Scott added.
