Parry: Woman Hurt, Homeless Man Arrested

Former Monrovia City Council candidate, Robert Parry, writes on Facebook: "I just saw one lady taken to the hospital and one guy arrested at the library park. He is one of the regulars among the homeless group."

Parry has been pushing the city to do something about homeless people congregating in Library Park.

  1. Is this the same item that you reported in the crime report?

    Domestic Violence - Suspect Arrested
    February 14 at 7:05 p.m., a male and female who are homeless were sitting on a bench in the park in the 300 block of South Myrtle. The male and female have been living together for eight years. The male suspect punched the female victim in the head and knocked her unconscious. Police responded and the suspect was arrested for domestic violence. The suspect is confined to a wheelchair, has a medical condition, and could not be housed at the Monrovia jail. He was taken to the Los Angeles County jail for housing. A computer check revealed the suspect is the restrained party in a domestic violence restraining order and the victim is the protected person.

    1. I don't know. This is from a police report and the police did not indicate it was the same incident Parry reported.

  2. It would appear to be the same. The man was not in wheel chair, but he did have a walker. I have been told the same guy has a history of violence, which is consistent with the restraining order element.
