ORIGINAL POST, MAY 17, 11:56 A.M.: Have you seen this fellow to the right?

Laguna Beach police suspect him of raping a woman in her home last month.

Officers have tried to arrest Babak "Bobby'' Azadgilani, 26, at his Laguna Niguel home and business, but he appears to be in hiding, according to Captain Jason Kravetz, the department spokesman.

Investigators fear Azadgilani may have also raped other women, Kravetz added.

The suspect has been known to drive a 2010 BMW motorcycle, with the California license plate 2OM4237.

A $100,000 arrest warrant for rape has been issued for Azadgilani in connection with the alleged sexual assault late in the afternoon of April 21 in a woman's Laguna Beach home, Kravetz said.

UPDATE NO. 1, MAY 21, 9:03 A.M.: Babak "Bobby" Azadgilani turned himself in Friday, according to Laguna Beach police.

He approached the front counter of the Laguna Beach Police Department around 5:30 p.m. and was booked on a $100,000 warrant for rape, police said.

Meanwhile, readers who left comments with our original post claim complaints about Azadgilani harassing women were made to his auto-dealership superiors. These accusers say the dealer ignored the complaints because Azadgilani was a top salesman.

i used to be "acquaintances" with this sick twisted fuck and have heard all of these accusations from a few other girls...He has creeped out some of my girl friends. Always seemed anti social and psychopath to me. Just the tip of the iceberg. Im not surprsied hes in the news either way it was this or to be wrapped around a pole the way he used to ride his bike like a fuckin retard. They should put him with the infamous JUICE, locked up too for 100 rapes, in the same jail cell so they can talk about how they couldnt get laid like a real man and bout never getting vagina again... Darwin wins, good riddance scumbag.............

Sounds like a good character starter for a Don Winslow book. "The Death and Life of Bobby A".

Why would the woman from the assault in 2009 ever go to his home?  That sounds really strange.

OMG!  I just looked up his record!  He raped another girl with a "deadly weapon" AFTER the one reported in this story.  The story says April but his record also shows a rape in May.  Sicko!  Thank God he is off the streets (for now).  This should be on the front page of Laguna papers for public safety.  I would bet there are at least a dozen more victims out there. 

How about a follow up story?  Other women have come forward since he was arrested.  How many others are there?  Let the public know that he is still in jail and that it is SAFE TO COME FORWARD now.  The more that speak up, the longer he will stay locked up!

Did you see his record for pubic nudity in 2006? That's always a warning sign to the courts. Geez. He has 15 violations on record, mostly traffic although more girls are coming forward. It's sad to think there are others out there too scared or ashamed to say anything. Step up ladies and put this guy away. Help others. I think it's listed that his bail is only $100,000 but in actuality its $2MILLION!!! A judge doesn't just award a $2Million bail - there has to be a reason or it gets thrown out. His latest rape in April was with a weapon. He's escalating. Help others ladies. Step up. He's been assaulting people, that we know of so far since 2009. If you are a victim, make the call.

I worked with this guy and you could just tell something was wrong with him, he snapped one day and we fired him. At our dealerhip he did not make any passes at woman. One woman said she felt belittled by him, we wrote him up due to she said he said. When we saw this on the news we were not surprise.

Dont be silly, all men can be abusive, even American men. This is not a race situation, this is a respect matter. All races of men can be dispectful to women, not just middle eastern men.

Ladies, certain nationalities and ethnic groups are far behind U.S. norms when it comes to gender relations.  No matter how much you want to "diversify" your bedroom partners, be advised and spare us the drama when he INEVITABLY abuses you or worse.  Don't be a victim, don't date middle eastern men.

Azadgilani turned himself in to the Laguna Bch PD on Friday and is in custody.

They should have done something at Tuttle-Click Ford. When I came forward and told them what he was doing to me. A upper Manger said he is our top sales guy.  When it got to HR i Had to write a letter and it did nothing.  They still kept him until to many customers complaied.  So some poor girl had to pay for it.

This creeper would scare girls in the gym at the 24 supersport in laguna. He wouldnt stop looking at them, stalk them and follow them to their cars. We had many complaints about him bothering members and he would pull up on his bike, rev it hard and then take off peeling out. Friend of mine told me he always was sick in the head and might of had some anti social/schizo problems. I am not shocked reading this.

This isn't the first time this loser has done something like this. He kept the other women silent by making physical threats to them and their families. This piece of trash also goes by the name of Bobby Gil, Bob Gil, Bobby Gilani, and Babak Gilani. Ken Grody Ford should be ashamed as having this guy as their decorated employee and top salesman even when other employees were complaining about his harassing conducts.

I worked with that creep and made a complaint against him.  And my job did nothing because he was the number one sales guy.  I no there are more victims because he would do and say things to our customer.  The dealership was wel aware out it.  It is sad that they would look the other way beacuse he made the Ford store money

It's just predisposed to abusing woman, anger at white strong and proud woman that won't give them the time of day, they treat woman like servants.

@OCBrit But proportionally, I'd wager that Middle Eastern and South Asian men are more prone to this sort of behavior. Look at the 'Asian' grooming scandals in the UK. 

White people are such milquetoasts
