Police Attempting to Identify Additional Victims

 

On Monday, May 18, 2015, shortly before 7 p.m., a male minor advised his mother that he had been sexually assaulted while in the dressing room area at the Rose Bowl Aquatic Center located at 360 N. Arroyo Blvd., Pasadena.

The minor’s mother immediately reported the incident to the Center’s staff, which recognized the suspect as a patron at the facility. Staff notified police and lifeguards followed the suspect from the Aquatic Center through the park where officers took suspect Leslie Dittert into custody without incident.

Suspect Leslie Dittert (white male, 57 years old, and a Glendale resident) was booked at the Pasadena jail for PC 288(a)(b)(1). The case was presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office on Thursday, May 21. No charges were filed against Dittert at this time, although the investigation is on-going. Police detectives are attempting to identify any additional victims.

Suspect Dittert was released from custody Monday afternoon.

Parents or minors that may have had inappropriate contact with Leslie Dittert are asked to contact Detective Monica Cuellar (626) 744-7128 (Tuesday through Friday 8 a.m. – 5 p.m.) or the Pasadena Police Dispatch non-emergency number at (626)744-4241 24/7.
