Two Suspects Arrested For Brutal Santa Monica Assault On September 22: Arizona men were working for a moving company and were in the Los Angeles area on a job

Updated Oct. 15, 2011 – 5:25 p.m.

Two men have been arrested in connection to a brutal and random attack of a man in Santa Monica in the early morning hours of Thursday, Sept. 22.

Santa Monica police confirmed on Saturday that its detectives had been working with the Maricopa County Sheriffs department in Arizona after several leads were developed during the first few days after the incident.

Last night it led to the arrests of Fountain Hill, AZ, resident Brian Scott Hale, 24, and Tempe, AZ, resident Brett Davis, 25.

They are being held at the Fourth Avenue Jail in downtown Phoenix on attempted murder charges with bail set at $1,030,000.

“Following up on many of the leads, Investigators were able to identify the two suspects (Residents of Arizona) and put enough evidence together to obtain a filing from the Los Angeles District Attoreys Office,” a SMPD statement read.

“With the assistance of the Maricopa County Sheriffs department and other local jurisdictions, the suspects were located and taken into custody on Friday evening (10-14-2011). Both suspects are charged with 664/187 PC (Attempted Murder).”

At about 2:20 a.m. on Sept. 22, Santa Monica police responded to the 3100 block of Santa Monica Boulevard regarding an assault that had just occurred.

Preliminary investigation revealed that the victim was walking westbound on the north sidewalk of Santa Monica Boulevard.

The victim was approached by two suspects who, without provocation, brutally beat the victim about the face and head with hand weights that the victim was exercising with.

The victim sustained major injuries to his head, face, and neck.

Authorities say both Arizona men were working for a moving company and were in the Los Angeles area on a job, according to The Arizona Republic.

Maricopa County sheriff’s officials said “Santa Monica police contacted them concerning one of the suspects,” according to The Arizona Republic. “After conducting surveillance on the man, sheriff’s officials said they identified the second suspect and arrested both of them Friday.”
