West Hollywood Sheriff’s deputies arrested a man this morning for attempting to assault another man with a deadly weapon near the Studs theater on Santa Monica Boulevard.

The Sheriff’s station got a call at 10:15 a.m. from the Block by Block Security Ambassadors reporting an assault near Studs, which is at 7734 Santa Monica Blvd. near North Spaulding.

The responding deputies located the suspect in a nearby parking lot and attempted to stop him. The man fled on foot and the deputies, pursued him for 10 minutes before tackling him at the intersection of Romaine and Fairfax and taking him into custody.

The nature of the weapon used in the assault is not clear but apparently it was not a gun.

Given his violent nature back then, this doesn’t surprise me in the least…

The park patrol enforces these rules with no hesitation on little… Read more »

Thankfully no one was hurt but the owners need to improve their security procedures so that their customers are protected.

These things happen. Don’t anyone blame the “nature” of the business where it allegedly occurred. These things happen in schools and churches too. Just be glad no one got hurt.
