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.
