On Monday, April 2, 2018, police formally arrested and charged Russell Casimiro, a 40-year-old dive master, for wounding. He was charged based on a complaint made by Carrie Tripodi, a 30-year-old American bar manager of a San Pedro address and Casimiro’s estranged girlfriend.

On the day of his arrest, Tripodi reported that while at home at about 12:15 a.m., she was getting ready to go to bed when Casimiro knocked on her door and instructed her to open the door. She refused and Casimiro climbed up the side of her house and broke into the balcony and entered the house through an unlocked door. He asked Tripodi for his cell phone and then repeatedly punched her to the face, causing a cut wound.

Casimiro has since pleaded guilty to wounding and was fined $1,000, due in July. San Pedro residents are outraged that he got off so easily.
