On January 4

A department detective assigned to the robbery/homicide division received a telephone call from the victim in one of the detective’s cases. The victim, upset by what he mistakenly believed was pressure from the investigator to pursue the case, left a voice message in which he threatens the officer and his family. The victim, now suspect, told the detective he knew where the detective lives and in a profanity-laced tirade said he would inflict serious bodily harm. The suspect, identified through caller identification and his statements about the underlying case as George Korchunov, has prior arrests for threats and is on probation. Korchunov was arrested for making criminal threats at his residence on Jan. 9 and transported to the Santa Monica Jail for booking. Korchunov, 19, of Santa Monica had bail set at $500,000.
