On September 23, at approximately 2:50 p.m.
Officers working routine patrol saw a subject slumped over while sitting on a bench in the 1400 block of Palisades Park. The officer approached the subject to check on his well-being but he did not respond when spoken to. The officers checked to see if the subject was breathing by touching his chest.
The subject seemed to wake up although he was extremely disoriented. The officers gathered the subject’s personal information and ran a routine computer check. In addition to his own identification he also had a California identification in the name of another person, a Metro tap card belonging to a second person and prescription medication belonging to a third person other than himself. The computer check revealed the subject was on parole for robbery and had a no bail warrant for a parole violation.
He was transported to Santa Monica jail and booked for the warrant and misappropriation of lost property. Ronnell Crosby, 51, of Compton was denied bail.
