Mayoral Candidate Questioned for Making Threats

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles detectives are investigating a Los Angeles Mayoral candidate for making threats to another candidate.

On February 26, 2009, at around 11:30 a.m., the Detective Support and Vice Division, Threat Management Unit (TMU) received notification of a Criminal Threats investigation involving two Los Angeles Mayoral candidates.  One of the two candidates reported that he had been threatened by the other candidate during a telephone call earlier in the day.  TMU detectives were aware that a political debate involving the same two candidates was scheduled for later that afternoon at 1762 South La Cienega Bl.

TMU detectives responded to the debate location and detained the candidate alleged to have made the threat.  The detectives interviewed and subsequently released the candidate pending review of this case by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office.  

This investigation is ongoing.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call our 24-hour, toll-free number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247).  Callers may also text “CRIMES” with a cell phone or log on to www.lapdonline.org and click on Web Tips.  When using a cell phone, all messages should begin with “LAPD.”  Tipsters may remain anonymous.
