The suspect then took out a handful of cash and told her that she was going to have sex with him.  She refused and when she attempted to exit the vehicle he grabbed her and was able to get her pants off.  The victim was escape from the suspect and run from the car.  The suspect then drove away at a high rate of speed. 
The victim was adamant that no sexual contact occurred.  A records check showed that she was a runaway and a Juvenile Court arrest warrant.  The victim was booked into Youth Detention.
This case was referred to the Sexual Assault Unit for follow up investigation.
