Thursday, Feb. 21, at 12:19 pm officers of the Santa Monica Police
Department went to the rear alley of the 3200 block of Santa Monica Boulevard
after hearing about a fight that was occurring there.
When the officers arrived they spoke with the two people involved and concluded that the
victim had been walking along the alley and stopping to pick up recyclable
items whenever he came across such objects of environmental disutility.
suspect had apparently told the victim that the items that were in the shopping
cart that the victim had been utilizing as a mobile receptacle were not the
property of the victim, but instead belonged to the suspect.
The suspect then
pulled out a piece of broken glass and threatened to cut the victim’s throat
out with it.
The victim decided that it would be wise to leave at that point,
so he did, and waited until the police arrived.
The officers, as a result of
their investigation, and based upon the statement of an independent witness
arrested the suspect, aged 51, and a resident of Carillo, California and he was
charged with assault with a deadly weapon, elder abuse, criminal threats, and a
pair of warrants.
Bail was set at $60,000.
