Asian girls are reluctant to report sexual abuse to the police because they fear that they will not be believed or that they will bring dishonour to their families, according to the group, which advises the British government on issues facing Muslim women. Rivera, 40, is a pastor at a church in Glendale called God's Gypsy Christian Church, a video on the parish's website showed. Rivera is also listed on the church's contact page. Police are searching for Glendale pastor who they say matches the description of a man who stood outside a hotel window in Covina watching two minors for more than 30 minutes before forcing his way inside the room and sexually assaulting one of the girls. One of the girls opened the door thinking the man was their chaperone and he proceeded to force his way inside, the Police Department stated.
Abuse by lone offenders is much more common than abuse by groups.

According to Burlington Police Chief Brandon del Pozo, the confrontation took place for more than an hour as the officers tried to take the belligerent teen into custody. Internalization of blame which also has cultural implications is another problem. Most of the victims said their abusers were men from the same ethnic group. There were six recorded cases of Type 2 group abuse. All of the men convicted were British-Pakistani.
