Homeless Man, 37, Arrested For Threatening To Kill His Wife While She Slept: Alert Police Blotter: Backpack Hits Back.

A homeless man who threatened to kill his homeless wife during her sleep was arrested on Wednesday, May 22.

At 10:01 pm officers of the Santa Monica Police Department were called out to the 1800 block of Lincoln Boulevard in order to investigate a domestic violence report.

When the officers arrived they spoke with the victim who told them she and her husband were both homeless.

She said they were about to go to sleep when they became embroiled in a verbal conflict.

She continued to tell the officers that her husband had gotten up to leave, but before doing so, he hit her on her back with his backpack.

He then told her that he was going to spend the night with his “other girl,” and that he intended to return at an undisclosed hour during the night in order to terminate her life as she slept.

The victim added that this was not the first time that her husband had assaulted her; in fact, she explained that “he had hit me many times before.”

She concluded the narrative by telling the officers that she genuinely feared that he would in fact kill her that night.

The officers found the suspect in the 800 block of Pico Boulevard and arrested him.

This 37-year-old homeless man was charged with criminal threats, and his bail was set at $50,000.
