... at 502 S. Westlake Ave. ...

... with a "dissolute person" named Ruth Schneider.

-- She was also a prostitute.

And frankly, I'll bet there's more to this story that didn't get written down.

A 1952 article in The Times includes Officer C. Wolf among those punished for "Bloody Christmas," although it's unclear if this is the same Officer Wolf. According to Clinton Erickson, a former officer who tracks the "End of Watch" for LAPD officers, Charles Wolf retired in 1967 and died March 13, 1969. He was 52. A nice bit of research at the city archives by Catriona Lavery, a UCLA intern with the Daily Mirror.
