Santa Monica Man Arrested After Disregarding Restraining Order:

A 33-year-old Santa Monica man was arrested on Friday, Aug. 8 for disregarding a restraining order and broke into his brother’s apartment through a kitchen window.

Officers of the Santa Monica Police Department were called out to investigate a burglary report in the 1800 block of Warwick Avenue at 11:10 pm on this day.

The report stated that the victim had been asleep in his home when he had heard some noises and speech emanating from his kitchen.

The victim had investigated and discovered that the intruder was his brother.

The victim told the police that he had a restraining order against the brother, and that the brother had also robbed their mother.

The victim also added that he feared for his safety and as a result had locked himself in his bedroom.

When the officers arrived they knocked on the front door but the suspect refused to open it.

One of the officers saw that the suspect was standing in the living room, and attempted to communicate with him through the window, but the suspect shut the window and drew the blinds.

The officers then spoke with the victim via a telephone and asked the victim if he wanted them (the police officers) to break down the front door.

The victim said that he would like them to do whatever they needed to do in order to arrest his brother, so the officers obliged and utilized a battering ram to smash the front door to pieces.

The officers then detained the suspect.

This suspect was found to be carrying a backpack, which contained a sandwich.

It was later determined the suspect took a screen off one of the kitchen windows, entered the house through said window, and constructed the aforementioned sandwich inside the victim’s kitchen using edibles belonging to the victim, all the while having extensive conversations with himself.

This man was arrested and charged with burglary and violation of a restraining order. Bail was set at $50,000.
