The 66-year-old man would be required to wear an ankle monitor and have an escort to leave the residence, but neighbors told CBSLA’s Kandiss Crone that doesn’t make them feel any safer. The home being considered for Grassmier, neighbors said, is near countless children, a community park and an elementary school.
“This is not an appropriate neighborhood,” La Crescenta resident Dottie Ghanbarian said. “No neighborhood with this many children is an appropriate place to place someone with these types of crimes. They have a high rate of repeating these crimes.”

Town Council President Harry Leon said that Grassmier’s proven history of violence is a threat to the neighborhood.
Some residents also said that cellphone reception and GPS signals are spotty, which could make monitoring Grassmier with an ankle bracelet difficult.
Superintendent Kathryn Barger, who represents the La Crescenta district, said that she is outraged that the court is considering placing Grassmier in the area.
