The Hopping Man ghost does haunt the Dominguez Hills. He is dressed like 1860s era clothing, and yes, it is around Del Amo and Wilmington Boulevard. There was a story by local residents about a boy riding his bike through the area that saw the hopping man ghost and that the ghost followed him closely as he tried to peddle faster on his bike. As he got closer into the neighborhood of Compton, the spirit departed. The boy lives on 155th Street off of Central.

Comment by Nick: The story of the Hopping Man in Dominguez Hills is common. The incident the young boy on the bike happened in the mid 1950s and many people in the area has heard of the Hopping Man. The little boy said that he was dressed like Abraham Lincoln.
That's a story from way back in the day. There is a story as well of a bull that haunted the area where the cattle ranch part of Dominguez Hills too. The story goes that the bull had very big nostrils and would charge at the victim and would just disappear as quickly.
That hasn't been seen in a very long time, but when there was more farmland and cattle ranches in Compton and Dominguez Hills, that story was common as well.
All my life I have encountered ghost. I saw my first one when I was four, so I know the feeling of one when one is around. We moved in to a house on Carson Street in Shannon Ranch California about a year ago. Every since we moved in I have felt a presence in the master closet. I cannot go to sleep with the door open. If I do, I wake up feeling someone on my side of the bed staring at me. I have seen a little girl a couple of times, a man, and a woman. Both adults I saw in my bath room and in my closet. The little girl stayed in the left or from what my daughter told me sometimes in her closet.
We were here for about a month and my husband had to work a night shift, so I had the girls sleep with me that night. While we were in bed just about to dose off we heard this loud knock that sounded like it came from the guest room, so I went check it out and found nothing. I went downstairs and check the door and found nothing. Honestly, I felt like I was in some sort of movie. I went back upstairs and told the kids it was just the creaking of the new house we have to get used to, and we went to sleep. About a week later my oldest daughter was talking about a ghost friend she has. She has a wild imagination, so I let her run with it.
