Santa Monica Police Arrest 22-Year-Old Man For Attacking Ex-Girlfriend:

Santa Monica police arrested a 22-year-old Los Angeles man on Saturday, Dec. 21 for attacking his ex-girlfriend in a local parking structure.

Officers of the Santa Monica Police Department were called out to a domestic violence call at 6 pm on this day in a public parking structure located at 1320 Fourth Street.

On route to the scene of the alleged crime the officers were informed that the suspect had fled from the location.

Upon arrival the officers spoke with the victim who told them that she had at one time been involved romantically with the suspect but after she had terminated the relationship and that ever since then the suspect had stalked her at school, social events, and her place of employment.

These activities had resulted in her taking out a restraining order against the suspect.

On the above date, however, the victim had agree do meet with the suspect in order to avoid causing him to cascade in a downward spiral towards a state of uncontrollable anger.

After this act of appeasement the victim told the officers that she had walked back to her vehicle in the parking structure accompanied by the suspect when he suddenly began to hit her in the face by flicking his finger at her and making less than complimentary comments regarding her person.

The victim added that when she arrived at her car she got in, locked the door and began to reverse out of the space.

The suspect however blocked her way by standing behind the vehicle, causing other cars to start honking their horns at her.

The victim then said that she obliged the suspect by allowing him to enter the car and sit in the passenger seat.

The suspect responded by becoming enraged, smashing things up inside the car and then slapping her in the face.

The victim then called 911 and the suspect fled the scene.

Officers, after hearing these claims by the victim searched for, and found the suspect and he was arrested.

This LA man was charged with criminal threats, domestic battery, and vandalism.

Bail was set at $50,000.
