Bus Stop Bust: Woman Arrested At Santa Monica Bus Stop After Threatening Person With Knife:

A 46-year-old Los Angeles woman was arrested on Sunday, June 14, after threatening a person at a bus stop with a large kitchen knife.

Officers of the Santa Monica Police Department were called out to investigate a report of an assault with a deadly weapon incident at 5:25 pm that had just occurred in the area of 14th St. and Wilshire Blvd.

The officers had learned from the victim’s report that he had approached the bus stop at the intersection of the two aforementioned thoroughfares with the intention of catching a bus.

The victim had noticed that there was a woman sitting on the bus bench at the bus stop and that the woman had been wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt that obscured her head and face.

The victim had stated that he had stood a few feet away from the bench in order to wait for the bus.

The victim stated that as he was doing this the woman had suddenly arisen from the bench and ordered him to move away from the bus stop.

The victim stated that he had refused to comply with this evidently unreasonable request and that when he had stood his ground the woman had produced a large kitchen knife and had said to the victim, “get away…I will kill you!”

The victim had at that moment feared for his life and had left the area and summoned the police.

When the officers arrived at the scene they spotted the suspect and questioned her.

The officers then searched the woman and discovered a large kitchen knife in one of her bags.

The victim then positively identified this Los Angeles resident and so the officers arrested her and charged her with assault with a deadly weapon.

The officers conducted a more thorough search of her bags when they arrived at the police station and discovered a debit card and an AAA membership card that belonged to persons other than her so additional charges of possession of stolen property were filed against this woman.

Bail was set at $30,000.
