Rape suspect turns self in

A man suspected of raping a Laguna Beach woman turned himself in Friday after police sought the public's help.

Babak "Bobby," Azadgilani, 26, of Laguna Niguel, turned himself in at 5:30 p.m. at the Laguna Beach Police Department and was booked on a $100,000 warrant for rape, Capt. Jason Kravetz wrote in an email.

Azadgilani is suspected of assaulting the woman in her home on April 21, according to police.

The victim contacted police after the alleged assault. Police said Azadgilani fled on his BMW motorcycle before officers arrived.

Laguna Beach detectives investigated and obtained a $100,000 warrant for Azadgilani's arrest this week. Police made attempts to arrest him at his home and place of business but believed he was hiding from authorities.
