WOODLAND HILLS - A 29-year-old parolee was arrested Monday on suspicion of raping his Canoga Park landlady, police said.

Gary Hallden of the Los Angeles Los Angeles (lôs ăn`jələs, lŏs, ăn`jəlēz'), city (1990 pop. 3,485,398), seat of Los Angeles co., S Calif.; inc. 1850. Police Department's West Valley Division. The landlady gave him a house key to use the bathroom.
In the early morning hours of July 28, Johnson is suspected of going into the home and trying to choke the victim and threatening bodily harm The medical idea of (grievous) bodily harm is more specific than legal ideas of assault or violence in general, and distinct from property damage.
It refers to lasting harm done to the body, human or otherwise, although in its legal sense it is exclusively defined as lasting before raping her, Hallden said.
