Bodies of 2 young women found in Montecito Heights.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – Police were on high alert Thursday after the bodies of two young women were found in a popular Los Angeles park with sweeping views of the city. The deaths of two women found dead near the edge of a Montecito Parks Height park on Wednesday have been ruled a homicide, Los Angeles police said, according to NBC L.A. We’re worried,” Sandoval said Thursday. “It’s very alarming, especially for anybody that’s a runner, a hiker or a walker who uses that park regularly and thinks, ‘Am I in harm’s way now?’ ” A woman walking her dog in the park found the bodies after the pet walked deeper inside and wouldn’t come out.

One of the women reported being groped as she walked alone, another reported that a man exposed his genitals to her, while a third said a man armed with a knife punched her and stood over her for several seconds before fleeing. Rosalia Lopez, who said she visits the park nearly every day, told The Los Angeles Times that she and other women in the area have discussed how unsafe they feel now. A 53-year-old woman, who declined to give her name because she feared for her safety, said she and a group of friends were working out at the park about 11 a.m.
