Woman Pepper Sprays Friend When Asked To Leave Santa Monica Residence: Alert Police Blotter: Head Banger.

A 23-year-old homeless woman was arrested on Thursday, Sept. 27 for pepper-spraying her “friend” who had asked her to leave the residence after bringing home an unwelcome man.

At 5:29 a.m. officers of the Santa Monica Police Department went to the 1800 block of Ocean Park Boulevard in response to a report of females fighting in the street.

When the officers arrived they found the two women in question in an alley off Ocean Park Boulevard, and noticed that one of these ladies was lying unconscious in the alley, whilst the other one was rubbing her eyes.

This woman told the officers the unconscious one had pepper sprayed her.

The officers called paramedics who arrived, picked up the unconscious woman and took her off to a local hospital for treatment of some head injuries.

The officers investigated and it was discovered that the woman who had been unconscious (victim) had invited the other woman (suspect) to stay at her residence for a couple of days, but when the “guest” had returned earlier that evening accompanied by a male “friend” the victim had felt disrespected and had asked the suspect to leave.

As the suspect had been leaving the victim noticed she was taking some of the victim’s clothes with and a fight ensued.

The suspect had struck the victim and in order to defend herself while the victim used pepper spray on her.

The suspect responded to the pepper spray by taking the victim down to the ground and smashing her head into the asphalt multiple times.

The victim eventually lost consciousness as a result of this.

The officers arrested this homeless woman and she was charged with robbery, assault with a deadly weapon, and a probation violation.

Bail was not granted.
