“Cuts hair by day and crime by night.”
The motto on the business card pretty much sums up Boston Dawna, who for many years has been a one-woman, bicycle-riding, crime-fighting machine in Venice.
By her own estimate, she has initiated thousands of private citizen’s arrests of “thieves, burglars and robbers,” pouncing on them from bushes and restraining them with handcuffs she buys in bulk from the Pleasure Chest sex shop.
Venice residents sad to see Dawna is moving back to Boston. More at the LA Times: Venice’s one-woman crime-fighting machine is heading back to Boston. Props to Nick.
