Incident of the day
On March 25 at about 9:40 p.m., Santa Monica police responded to a care facility at the 1300 block of 20th Street regarding a sexual battery.
When the officer arrived, he spoke with a caretaker at the location who told him the suspect, whom she was treating at the time, slapped her buttocks two weeks prior to this incident. The victim told the suspect not to touch her and warned him she would call the police if he ever did it again. The suspect threatened the victim and told her he would have his gangster friends harm her if she did call the police.
The suspect was verbally hostile toward the victim over the next few treatments, and then on the day of this incident tried to grab her between the legs. When the victim moved away from the suspect, he slapped her buttocks again. The victim then contacted the police.
When officers ran a check of the suspect’s criminal history, they discovered there was a no-bail warrant for his arrest. Randolph Cornelius Holmes, 67, of Santa Monica, was held without bail.
