Santa Monica Police Department (SMPD) Officers were dispatched to a residence in the 2900 block of Urban Avenue regarding a burglary in progress. The reporting party, and her juvenile daughter both called 9-1-1 to report an intruder in their residence. When officers arrived on scene, they immediately established a perimeter around the residence and noticed one of the windows was smashed. They observed the suspect, later identified as Joshua Absolom Hattam, a 49-year-old male from San Francisco, inside the residence. Officers were able to quickly take him into custody, while also checking the status of all the residents. The residents told officers there were awoken by a loud crashing noise, then noticed Hattam in their living room, yelling. They immediately locked themselves in their bedrooms and called police, while Hattam walked through their home searching for unknown items. Hattam was booked at the Santa Monica Jail for 459 PC – Burglary. Anyone with additional information pertaining to this incident or individual is encouraged to contact the Criminal Investigations Division 310-458-8451 or Santa Monica Department Watch Commander (24 hours) at 310-458-8427.
