In February, Anthony Pittman, currently homeless, pled no contest to a series of sexual assaults he committed between August and September 2022.


On September 27, 2022, at approximately 4:00am, a female experiencing homelessness was sleeping near the Santa Monica Library when she awoke to a male suspect attempting to remove her blankets. She attempted to run from the suspect but was tackled to the ground where he sexually assaulted her.  A few hours after the incident, she walked to the Santa Monica Police Station and made an official report.  Incident: 220098142


The other 2022 incidents occurred in LAPD’s Northeast and Wilshire Divisions. Pittman was linked to his victims, who were all homeless female adults, through DNA evidence.


Pittman, a previously convicted sex offender, was sentenced to eight years in state prison for Forced Sodomy and Assault with Intent to Commit a Felony.
