Two men have been charged with prowling and possession of methamphetamine for approaching a Santa Monica home holding a knife. 

According to the Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD), on September 20 around 2:40 a.m., officers responded to a prowling that just occurred at a residence in the 2300 block of 4th Street.
