Xtreme justice in Chula Vista Allison K. Sampite | Sat, Feb 05 2011 12:00 PM

There are superheroes living among us. Their interests are justice and comic books. They hold monthly meetings and conference calls. They carry stun guns, pepper spray, flashlights and have full body armor. These guys are not messing around.

The Xtreme Justice League was founded in 2005. They are an elite group who call themselves extreme crime fighters and live to fight for justice.

Mr. Xtreme is the cofounder of the Extreme Justice League. Last week, he stood at the corner of Fourth and J Street and handed out flyers of a man suspected of groping at least 13 females on the west side of Chula Vista since September. The victims range in age from 15 to 57 years old and were grabbed on their chest, crotch and buttocks.

"We'll be here every week until he gets caught," Mr. Xtreme said.

Last month, the Chula Vista Police Department released a composite sketch of this man, described as a light-skinned Latino in his early 20s with an average build and thin mustache, who often wears a hooded sweatshirt.

Mr. Xtreme said the league exists to create awareness and act as a visual deterrent to prevent attacks like this. "We're hoping that someone catches him or that he retires early," he said.

In March 2008, Mr. Xtreme helped raise awareness of a string of similar sexual assault incidents involving a man on a skateboard on the east side of Chula Vista. The suspect was never caught.

"It's unfortunate there are sickos out there like this," Mr. Xtreme said. "It's no laughing matter. We take this very seriously."

The Xtreme Justice League also posted flyers near the San Diego State University campus where a man punched a woman in the face while she was walking home late last week near Campanile and Montezuma.

Mr. Xtreme said he can relate. "I had a female friend who was sexually assaulted and the guy was never caught," he said. "It was very sad. It's also a personal crusade for me because of abuse at home and being bullied at school."

Mr. Xtreme has experience as a security guard and has trained in martial arts. But he said the biggest asset is his verbal communication skills. "I don't like getting my hair messed up anymore than you do," he said.
