The West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station deserves major kudos today for an effort to locate a domestic violence situation in progress.
A call came in to the station at about 6:15pm tonight, however it was interrupted before much information could be collected, including the location of the incident. But it was clear that a heated fight was underway.
Undeterred, the watch deputy, Steve Fryworth, and his team at the station’s desk began working with whatever information they had. They quickly located the nearest mobile phone tower that transmitted the call, using the E911 system.
That sent deputies to the area of Beverly Blvd, near Doheny, to try to locate the parties. The area is in a triangle where the City of Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and West Hollywood come together.
They then replayed the 911 recordings and listened very carefully for additional clues to provide to deputies in the field. Fryworth concluded that the call was likely placed from a shop or a residence, and he could hear the female yelling “get out!” at the man.
Eventually the located incident on the 100 block of South Wetherly, just southeast of Beverly and Doheny, assisted by another call to the station, and as the woman made her way out to the street.
Fortunately, she wasn’t injured badly. The male remained inside the apartment, apparently tearing it apart. Deputies brought him out and detained him.
Although the incident fell outside of West Hollywood boundaries, deputies handled the incident while LAPD was notified and pending their arrival.
LAPD officers didn’t respond for quite some time. They were notified around 6:45, according to Weho Daily’s records, but LAPD officers had not even been assigned to the call when Weho deputies called back to check the status at 7PM.
At that point, the watch commander at the Weho Sheriff’s Station ended up calling the LAPD watch commander to get the call assigned to patrol cars. They were then dispatched with a 4 to 6 minute ETA.
This slow response was a stark contrast to the extraordinary effort of the West Hollywood Sheriff’s Station, and is an example of why we’re lucky to have the Sheriff taking care of us here in West Hollywood. And in some cases like this, some people near West Hollywood are lucky as well.
