A 26-year-old Santa Monica woman was arrested at her Ninth Street apartment on Sept. 7 for attacking her boyfriend’s genitalia after discovering “dating” websites on his phone.
At 10:53 a.m. SMPD officers went to the 800 block of Ninth Street in response to a report of a domestic dispute.
The officers had been informed that both parties involved had each called to report the incident.
Upon arrival the officers spoke with the female reporting party who was at that time standing outside her apartment complex and looking very calm and relaxed.
This woman told the officers that she had decided to attack her husband by throwing various random objects at him after she had discovered some “dating” websites on his smart phone (not so smart?).
This woman added that in addition to throwing the items she had also thrown a punch at her husband.
The officers then spoke with the husband and immediately noticed some fresh injuries on his body, including a red welt on his forehead, redness and swelling on both arms, and an abrasion on his left calf.
The husband said that he had been in the shower when the wife had confronted him about the dating website on his smart phone.
He added that he had tried to convince her that he was not cheating on her and as he was attempting to exit the shower she had punched him and kicked him in his genitalia.
The husband also said that his wife had thrown things at him before but this was the first time she had actually punched him and kicked him in his genitalia.
The officers then returned to the wife who admitted being the aggressor.
Based upon all of the evidence the officers arrested this 26-year-old Santa Monica woman and she was charged with domestic violence. Her bail was set at $50,000.
