Kevion Roy Hunt, Valley's Alleged 'Ear Gauge Stalker,' Charged With Attempted Rape
The man police say is the "Ear Gauge Stalker" because of the distinctive, stretched holes in the suspect's ears, is facing seven felony counts today.
The District Attorney's office announced that 20-year-old Kevion Roy Hunt was hit with allegations of "assault with intent to commit a felony, attempted forcible rape, sexual battery by restraint, kidnapping to commit another crime and kidnapping."
That after the LAPD said he ...
... attacked two women at a Sylmar apartment complex in the early morning hours of Sunday, Dec. 9.
After grabbing a woman pushing a stroller and backing off because she screamed, cops say the suspect went after another about an hour later:

He grabbed her and through a combination of carrying and dragging, he moved her 60 feet to a dark, secluded area, and started to remove her clothing.
Neighbors intervened and he backed off again, officers allege.
Perhaps because of the distinctive description, Hunt surrendered to police Friday. Prosecutors say they'll recommend bail of $1.4 million.
Hunt could face life in prison if convicted.
