Bail Set At $50,000 For Santa Monica Charged With Domestic Violence:

Bail was set at $50,000 for a Santa Monica man on Saturday, Nov. 30 after two incidents of domestic violence in three days against his girlfriend of two months.

Officers of the Santa Monica Police Department were requested to attend a domestic dispute at a residence in the 2000 block of 20th Street on Thursday, Nov. 28 at 10 am.

Upon arrival the officers spoke with the victim who told them that her new boyfriend, whom she had been dating for just two months, had grabbed her around the neck and attempted to choke her, and had told her that he was going to kill her.

She told the officers that when she had returned home the man was on the roof of the building acting in a paranoid fashion and that she suspected that he was under the influence of methamphetamine.

She added that he had assaulted her as a way to win an argument that they were having at the time.

The victim told the officers that the man had released his grip on her neck after he had heard her roommate walking down the hallway of the residence. The suspect had then left the building.

A report was taken and the victim was issued an emergency protective order. 

Two days later, on Nov. 30 at 9:15 pm, officers responded to a report that a man was holding a gun to the head of a woman in the same residence so they rushed there to investigate.

The officers were approaching the residence when the same woman from two days prior exited the building.

This woman told the officers that the man was inside the building but did not have a gun.

The officers approached the suspect and although there was not any evidence of him holding the woman at gunpoint they arrested him for the previous domestic violence incident.

This 36-year-old Santa Monica resident was later charged with inflicting corporal injury, making terrorist threats, and petty theft.
