Knife-Wielding Santa Monica Resident Arrested For Threatening To Attack People: APB: Crazed Knife Man

On Thursday, Feb. 9, at 11:12 a.m. officers of the Santa Monica Police Department went to the 1700 block of Bryn Mawr after they received a report of a man who had brandished a knife.

When they arrived at the scene, the officers spoke with the victim who told them that she had been walking along the sidewalk when they passed a man who was staring at them as they strolled on by.

This man was holding a large (approximately 10”) knife by his side and looked, according to the victim, “crazed.”

The victim feared that this crazy-looking man was going to attack them, so they called the police. The officers checked the area and discovered this man in the rear of a residence in the 1700 block of Bryn Mawr.

The officers told this man to raise his hands, but he refused and began to walk away, and as he was doing so the officers saw that he was reaching down into his waistband.

The officers feared that this man was going to pull out a weapon so they deployed their trusty X26 Taser. The X26 Taser struck this man on the upper back, but he continued to resist but after a short struggle, and an additional X26 experience, the crazed man was taken into custody and the knife was taken from him.

The suspect was then positively identified by the victim and then taken to an area hospital to be checked out after the X26 episodes.

The suspect was deemed by the medical professionals at the hospital to be in a fit enough condition (physically, at least) to be taken to jail, where he was charged with exhibiting a deadly weapon and obstructing officers. The bail for this 47-year-old Santa Monica resident was set at $25,000.
