Santa Monica police officers responded to the 1300 block of Seventh Street regarding a report of an assault that recently took place. When officers arrived they made contact with a man who said he was in the alley behind his business working on his truck when a homeless man he knows came up behind him and bit him on the neck. He pushed the man away and didn‚Äôt bother to call police right away. Two days later he had a change of heart and called police to report the alleged crime. Officers took the report and booked video into evidence. On Feb. 12, officers were in Downtown looking for the suspect and found him in a carport on the 700 block of Arizona Avenue. He was detained and placed under arrest for battery with serious bodily injury. He was identified as Bryan Dibucci, 44, a transient. His bail was set at $50,000.
