LA County Childrens Services Worker Allegedly Threatened To Take Kids Away From Mom As Part Of Sexual Coercion
This official creep alert from the LAPD is especially creepy because the suspect in question is a county child services social worker who, authorities allege, threatened to take a woman's children away unless she submitted to his sexual advances.
Police said county Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) worker Yadullah "Eddie" Lorghaba was arrested and subsequently charged on suspicion of felony sexual battery following his alleged attack on a woman whose kids he was checking on in Woodland Hills in September.
As if the DCFS hasn't had enough recent trouble.
The 30-year-old victim said the 53-year-old suspect attacked her and even threatened to come back in a week for a "follow-up visit."

The woman reported the attack to the DCFS, and officials there put Lorghaba on leave.
District Attorney's officials said the suspect left evidence -- DNA evidence.
He's out on $75,000 bail, so hide your moms (just in case). In fact, cops want to know if this suspect might have done this before.
Anyone with information on Lorghaba was asked to call detectives at 818-756-3375.
