On Feb. 4 at approximately 4 p.m., a Santa Monica police officer was dispatched to a facility in the 500 block of Olympic Boulevard in response to the report of an ex-client brandishing a knife and threatening employees.

According to staff, the subject, later identified as Roger Kiskaden, 55-year-old transient, was trying to enter the facility after being banned when he was stopped by an employee.

Kiskaden began to yell and began to demand that all of his items be returned. The staff member said she feared for her life, as Kiskaden made threats indicating he would stab her with his knife. While conducting a search, officers recovered a knife from his person.

A warrant check revealed that Kiskaden had a no-bail warrant. Kiskaden began to bang his head against the Plexiglas of the patrol vehicle during transport to the jail; he was transported to the hospital for a medical clearance.

While in custody, Kiskaden made suicidal statements, and he was taken for a psychological evaluation. No bail was set.
