Hurricane Marie is in the swell window on Firday for southerly exposures across California. The resulting swell should have enough west in it to show for many SoCal breaks.

The person wanted in connection of a rape and attempted murder of a woman at the Venice Pier has been taken into custody on Saturday, just 2 days after the "Community Alert" bulletin was made public.

More looters have been arrested.

From a statement on the SMPD Facebook page:
"On Thursday September 17, 2020, officers from the Santa Monica Police Department served search warrants at two locations within the City of Los Angeles. The search warrants were related to looting activity during the civil unrest in Santa Monica on May 31, 2020. Officers monitored video footage from REI, located at 402 Santa Monica, and observed two individuals stealing items from the store. Officers were able to identify two subjects, Marques Miles and Misty Jones (both residents of Los Angeles) during the investigation. Officers obtained warrants to search the residences of both subjects and recovered approximately $2,500 worth of property stolen from REI. Both Milers and Jones were arrested and booked for Burglary (459 PC) and Burglary during State of Emergency (463 (a) PC). Bail was set at $50,000 each."

But it should not be forgotten, that the Santa Monica Police Department allowed the looting to happen, and the fact that the Santa Monica Police Chief and several city council members blatantly lied about what happened.

If you watched our Instagram Stories last weekend, you probally remember we had footage of a large dude unconscious laying on the Venice Boardwalk. Well, we found the video of what happened. According to the video shot by Winning Circle84, this rather large Vato was in a fight with his co-worker and got the knocked out with a knee to the face .

Two videos from LOUDLABS NEWS capturing the fight and shooting that happened around 1 a.m. Wednesday outside the Cabo Cantina. the second veideo shows the aftermath and police investigating.

"It was reported that about three suspects ran from a shooting scene next to the Cabo Cantina. One person was shot and transported to a local hospital by LAFD paramedics. The three suspects are believed to have left the scene on foot and possibly jumped into a red Jeep. No further information available at this time. LAPD is handling the investigation."

Investigators tracked down one suspect who was arrested the next day in the city of Norwalk, where officers served a search warrant and found the handgun believed to have been used in the shooting, police said.

Police are asking for the public’s help finding the two other people involved in the fight.

Anyone with information or video footage of the incident is urged to call LAPD Detective Angel Gomez at 310-482-6370. Those who wish to remain anonymous can call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-847.

Earlier this month a woman was found seriously beaten and left for dead at the Venice Pier, now the LAPD has put out this notice regarding that Venice Pier rape case:

There's a tropical Storm entering the SoCal swell window and expected to strengthen slightly as it continues to move through it. Tropical storm Lowell is about 450 miles to the south-southwest of Southern Baja right now. The shorter-period south-southeast shifting south swell is expected to arrive by Thursday and potentially last into the upcoming weekend, but not expected to bump size all that much.

Here's an official and an "unofficial" update on the Woman Found Beaten And Left For Dead At The Venice Pier story we ran on Tuesday and that was seen on our Instagram Story.

First the official update, the Los Angeles Police Deptartment is calling this a sexual assualt. The victim was found laying on the ground outside of the restroom located on Ocean Front Walk and Anchorage Street in Venice Tuesday morning around 6:45 a.m.

LAPD said that the victim was suffering from severe head trauma and was naked from the waist down. The victim's wallet, purse, iPhone and vehicle have not been located. The missing vehicle is a gray 4-door 2011 Ford Escape with Arizona license plate CPL5138.

They release this Crime Notice asking for help locating the victim's vehicel.

Now the "unofficial" update, we gathering some info from some of the locals:
The woman sexually assualted is said to be a 29 year old college student/graduate.

The attack may have started behind the Arbor store, and ended at the restrooms just south of pier, where she was further beaten, then dragged to the backside of the restrooms and left for dead.

Security camera footage from the local businesses captured some of the event and are being reviewed.

Photos and videos from Pepperdine Graphic:

A car chase that started in the valley ended in Malibu prompting the closure of PCH on a busy afternoon.

The chase started about 1:55 p.m. at Ventura Boulevard and DeSoto Avenue, LAPD said. The driver of a work truck hauling a trailer allegedly hit several cars along Ventura Boulevard and ran a red light. They chased this fool over the canyon and onto PCH.

Shortly before 2:30 p.m., the driver stopped again along PCH and Carbon Canyon Road, and at least six LAPD units were waiting behind.

PCH was shut down from Sweetwater Mesa to Carbon Canyon after the driver stopped.

At 3:10 p.m., officers went up to the driver’s side of the vehicle with their guns drawn and forcibly removed the shirtless man from the truck.

As seen in our Tuesday Instagram Story, LAPD was investigating what appears to be an attempted murder on a woman at the Venice Pier.

According to one of the officers on the scene, a woman was found severely beaten and left for dead at the restroom just south of the Venice Pier.

The attack happened sometime between 2:00 and 5:00AM, and the womans body was discovered around 6:30AM.

She was taken to the hospital and is in critical condition.

No other info was given, but as seen in our Instagram Story, the detective was going over the scene and saying that she was beaten in the parking lot, then dragged over to the backside of the restrooms where her body was dumped.
