Two Women Arrested After Public Scuffle On Third Street Promenade:

Two women who used to be in a relationship and formally lived together were both arrested on Thursday, Dec. 11, after getting into a public scuffle on the Third Street Promenade.

Officers of the Santa Monica Police Department were called out to a report of a fight in the area of Third Street and Broadway at 9:50 pm, so they rushed to the location to investigate.

Upon arrival the officers located the two female suspects standing close to the crosswalk. One of the women was bleeding from a laceration on her right ear lobe.

The officers investigated and discovered that the two women used to be involved in a romantic relationship and had previously lived together, but the romantic part of the relationship had ended when one of the women had moved out of the domicile.

The officers also discovered that woman number one had visited woman number two at her place of work, accompanied by a man.

Apparently on this visit woman number one, along with the man, had harassed woman number two.

Woman number two had walked away, but woman number one had followed her and pulled a pair of scissors from her purse.

Woman number two had managed to pull the scissors from woman number one and had put woman number one in a headlock.

There followed a short fight during which both women suffered minor injuries.

The officers were unable to assess who was the primary aggressor so they arrested both women and they were charged with domestic violence.

Woman number one, aged 32, and of Los Angeles was granted bail of $50,000, as was woman number two, aged 30, and a resident of Hollywood.
