Homeless Man Stabs Santa Monica Park Employee

The Santa Monica Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division (CID), in conjunction with the Special Operations Division, has identified and arrested a suspect involved in a felony assault that occurred yesterday morning.

On March 15, 2023, at approximately 8:15 AM, patrol officers responded to a 911 call from a Downtown Ambassador who reported a subject down in Palisades Park near the Camera Obscura. Arriving officers located a City of Santa Monica employee who had been stabbed in the upper torso when he attempted to rouse an individual sleeping in the area. The suspect fled the area prior to officers’ arrival. The victim was transported by the Santa Monica Fire Department to a local hospital for treatment of a non-life-threatening injury.

This morning, CID detectives were able to identify a possible suspect and at approximately 1100 hours officers located and arrested him. In custody for aggravated assault:

Barna, Allen Cranford DOB: 10/6/1982

Anyone with information pertaining to this incident or person involved is strongly encouraged to contact SMPD Detective Pollnow at 310-458-8455 or or the Watch Commander (24 hours) at 310-458-8426.

This happens just a couple of days after another Homeless Man Arrested for Attempted Murder and Hate Crime on the beach in Sata Monica.
