Yet, on July 12, the LAPD confirmed the news - again, via a Twitter post - about Diaz's arrest earlier in the day.

"I was like squished and I had to not make a sound basically, and I heard the cops come in searching for me, and obviously they couldn't find me", she said. "But we were in a relationship".
"I know it's hard because I was manipulated", the 17-year-old said in an Instagram story video on Friday.
"Know that an abusive relationship where you're being physically or mentally abused is not ok and that you can be strong and you can speak out and you are loved by many", she said.

The Omaha Police Department (OPD) says they've located and extradited a man who's accused of First-Degree Sexual Assault of a child.14 years after he was reported. "It gets the juices flowing".
