Woman of Santa Monica Sprays Neighbor’s Face With Dog Repellent:

A 50-year-old Santa Monica resident was arrested on Friday, Oct. 2, after spraying her neighbor in the face with dog repellent.

At 11:10 pm an officer of the Santa Monica Police Department was called out to investigate a report of a battery that had occurred in an apartment complex that was located in the 600 block of Pico Blvd. 

Upon arrival the officer was met by the victim who told the officer that for the past year there had been friction and discourse between herself and the suspect, a woman who also resided in the apartment complex. 

The victim added that earlier that day the suspect had been inside the laundry room when she (the victim) had attempted to enter said facility. The victim said that the suspect had prohibited her from entering by locking the door. 

She added that after she had made numerous requests to the suspect to unlock the door and allow her to enter the laundry room the suspect had eventually opened the door. 

At that time she said that they had both become embroiled in an argument. She said that following the argument the suspect had walked to the victim’s apartment and had stood in her doorway yelling and screaming like a banshee. 

The victim said that the suspect had then sprayed her with dog repellent that had caused severe discomfort in her eyes. The suspect told the officers that she had used the dog repellent spray in self-defense. 

The officer examined the victim and noticed that she had swelling and redness on the left side of her face, presumably as a result of being sprayed by the dog repellent. 

The officer thus arrested the suspect, a woman of Santa Monica and she was charged with assault with a dangerous weapon. Bail was set at $50,000.
