Cops Arrest Homeless Woman For Assaulting Santa Monica Security Guard: Alert Police Blotter: Takedown.

A homeless woman was arrested Wednesday, June 12 after assaulting a security guard in front of a Santa Monica restaurant he was protecting.

At 8:52 am officers of the Santa Monica Police Department received a radio call alerting them to a battery incident that had just occurred at the intersection of Second Street and Colorado Avenue.

The radio call informed the officers that a security guard had been forced to “take a female subject down” after she had assaulted him.

The officers rushed to the scene to investigate.

Upon arrival the officers noticed that the security guard was still holding the woman down on the 100 block of Colorado Avenue.

The officers separated the sparring pair and placed the female suspect into handcuffs due to her persistently obstreperous behavior.

The officers then took a few moments to chat with the security guard in order to ascertain what had happened that morning.

The security guard told the officers that he had seen the female suspect attempt to enter the south facing entrance of the business (restaurant) that he was guarding and had noticed that she was yelling and screaming and generally causing a disturbance.

The security guard informed the officers that he had told the woman that she was not welcome to enter the restaurant displaying such disturbing behavior, and she responded by screaming at him some more and then slapping him in the face.

It was at that point that the security guard, for his own protection, took the woman down.

The officers asked the security guard if he wished to press charges against the woman, and he said that he did, so, under the auspices availed to them by the citizen’s arrest protocol the officers arrested this 35-year-old homeless woman, and she was charged with assault.

Bail was not granted.
