Steven Robert Sabalan Wiki – Steven Robert Sabalan Biography

The suspect approached the girl at a bus stop in San Antonio, Texas, and forced her into his car, police say.
A 13-year-old girl just saved her own life. According to the Long Beach Police Department, Steven Robert Sabalan, 61, forced the girl into her car in San Antonio, Texas, on July 6. He allegedly held her at gunpoint and took her with him across state lines nearly 1,400 miles to California, where she was found three days later.

“The Good Samaritans were in a parking lot when they saw the victim in a parked vehicle holding a piece of paper with the word ‘help me’ written on it,” an LBPD press release read. “They recognized the note and immediately called 9-1-1.” The girl also uttered the words “help me” to passersby while Sabalan was inside a laundromat, according to police. She later revealed that the suspect told her that he was going to “hurt” her if she didn’t do as he said.

After kidnapping her, Sabalan allegedly asked the victim how old she was. When she mentioned that she had a friend in Australia, she allegedly told the victim that she could take her on a cruise to visit her friend, but that she had to do something for him first, according to the US Attorney’s Office.

Charges on Steven Robert Sabalan

Authorities said that once Sabalan was taken into custody they found a “replica firearm, which looked like a semi-automatic pistol,” which the suspect used to intimidate the victim. They also determined that Sabalan had sexually assaulted the girl at least three times during the trip.

“I want to commend our community members for their vigilance and willingness to get involved by calling 9-1-1. This incident highlights the critical role community members play in keeping people safe,” said Long Beach Police Chief Wally Hebeish. “I would also like to thank our officers for their quick response and actions that led to getting this victim to safety.”


He contacted the Department of Children and Family Services in San Antonio and took custody of the teenage victim. The suspect was indicted by a federal grand jury earlier this week and charged with one count of kidnapping and one count of transporting a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.

The press release also indicated that the FBI will assume the lead role in the case. Sabalan’s arraignment is scheduled for July 31 in the United States District Court in downtown Los Angeles. If he is found guilty of both counts in the indictment, Sablan will face a maximum statutory sentence of life in prison.Read more……
