Q: When Was Last Reported Rape in Atwater Village?

Driving: Tracks Along San Fernando RoadA: THIS SATURDAY. The crime was reported in the 5200 block of West San Fernando Road, just up from the "gentleman's club" on that industrial frontage road in North Atwater Village. (Parallel to the real San Fernando Road on Glendale's side of the train tracks.) According to the LAPD report, the crime happened at 3:00 a.m., Jan. 31.

Before this, Atwater Village seems to have avoided the R word for years. In fact, this instance of "carnal knowledge of a female forcibly and against her will" is the only one in Everyblock's crime database for ZIP 90039 so far this century. Take that for what it's worth.
