Jurors took about an hour Friday to find a Torrance man guilty of kidnapping and sexually assaulting a 2-year-old girl from a Gardena car wash, dismissing - and even laughing - at his story that an unidentified drug dealer named Flaco committed the crime. Michael David Ikeler, 38, stared straight ahead, showing no reaction as a Torrance Superior Court clerk read the jury's verdict, convicting him of one count of lewd act upon a child under the age of 14 and two counts of sexual penetration of a child under age 10. Jurors also found a special allegation that the crime was committed during the course of a kidnapping to be true. Comment?

A young mother tearfully recalled Thursday in court how she frantically searched for her 2-year-old daughter when the toddler vanished from her side at a Gardena car wash nearly two years ago. Taking the witness stand in Torrance Superior Court, the mother's testimony opened what is expected to be a two-week trial for the 38-year-old man accused of abducting the girl, sexually assaulting her and abandoning her naked next to a trash bin in an empty parking lot 13 miles away.
