On March 3 at approximately 12 p.m., Santa Monica police officers were dispatched to a motel in the 2000 block of 14th Street in regards to an occupant harassing another occupant.

Upon arrival, officers spoke to the witness, who stated that the subject, later identified as Abdulrahman Alkhalifah, 24, was yelling and being rude to the motel janitorial staff.

In hearing all of this, she stood in the doorway of her room with her son right behind her when Alkhalifah began to intimidate and threaten the witness and her son.

Alkhalifah and the witness exchanged words as Alkhalifah threatened to hurt the witness. She became nervous and told officers she feared for her and her son’s safety.

When officers knocked on Alkhalifah’s door, he said he was upset because his room was not cleaned properly and that he became frustrated.

Alkhalifah was arrested for criminal threats. Bail was set at $30,000.
