On April 1 at approximately 6:50 p.m., Santa Monica police officers responded to the 2400 block of Virginia Avenue in response to a radio call of a possible assault with a deadly weapon.
The victim and suspect were friends. While arguing, the suspect produced a knife and placed it on the victim’s throat, stating that she could kill him if she wanted to.
The suspect, later identified as Jozelle Renee Hall, 45, of Los Angeles, then left the location but returned shortly thereafter. While outside the premises, the suspect attempted to pry off the partially open sliding windows, causing damage to the property.
The suspect was arrested on scene without incident, and the knife was recovered from suspect’s purse. The suspect also provided false personal information to officers while being booked.
Hall was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, vandalism and false impersonation. Bail was set at $30,000.
