Santa Monica Man Arrested After Threatening Murder On Voicemail:

Santa Monica police arrested a 19-year-old Santa Monica man on Friday, Aug. 8 after leaving threatening voicemails, claiming he was going to murder the victim’s father.

At approximately 9:55 pm on this day, a suspect phoned the victim and left a voicemail message telling him to step outside his residence at 1800 10th Street.

Shortly afterward, the suspect left a second message in which he used several derogatory terms and foul language to describe the victim’s family, and then claimed he would murder the victim’s father.

Fearing for his safety, because the suspect was possibly related to some gang members; the victim contacted the police.

After speaking with the victim, officers of the Santa Monica Police Department drove to the suspect’s residence and asked him about the calls.

The suspect admitted to making the calls and said he only wanted to fight the victim, because the victim made fun of him in the lyrics of a rap song he recorded.

The victim claimed he only wrote the lyrics after the suspect insulted him in one of his rap songs. 

The suspect was then taken into custody and booked for making criminal threats.
