__________
Dawud Abdulwali was moved to Glendale for a court appearance. This may be about the squatter case or other cases. This alert came from VINE. He was sentenced to 60 days in that case. While he's in custody I'm sure other jurisdictions will have him appear.

"This e-mail is to inform you that DAWUD ABDULWALI is approaching the end of the court's sentence and is scheduled to be released on 6/16/2015. This date may change, depending upon a number of factors. You may want to call the VINE service as the date gets near to find out if it has been changed."

DA press release is here.

Dawud rented an illegal room behind a house for $450/month. He owned a 2005 Crown Victoria taxi which he sold in February for apx $1,500. It may have been the taxi he drove to the arson. City does not show him having a taxi license. Maybe he just owned the car and leased it to someone with a license? He had many vehicle infractions so maybe he did drive the taxi. Some infractions were for not having a license. Maybe it was a taxi license and not a regular driver's license.

UPDATE: Still no mug shot or case number. He pled not guilty at his arraignment yesterday. Glad they kept the bail high. Abdulwali's attorney tried to argue he wouldn't be a flight risk without his passport. Obviously it's his job to argue for the benefit of his client. I'm sure it's a public defender as this guy appears to be broke. Below is first drawing from court appearance yesterday.

UPDATE: DA stated in court today Dawud served two stints in prison. He was also on probation stemming from his 2013 assault case. He's being held on $1,000,000 bail. He was living in a back room at 200 block of East 73rd Street which is 110 fwy near Florence Blvd which is a shitty part of town. His landlord is Poleth Chavez so address is most likely 246 E 73rd, 90003. Below are pics. It's off an alley. I'd bet it's that illegal room they made between garage and house. That could be his car.

UPDATE: Arsonist caught. 56 year old Dawud Abdulwali birth name Timothy Joseph Roston. Born April 23, 1959. 6'5" 215 lbs black male. He has a criminal history here in LA from 1990 to the present, see below. Based on what I see he is a confused, misdirected, drifter with no real job who identifies as an animal, environment, poor people activist who converted to Islam or at least changed his name to an Islamic sounding name. He desires money,women, nice cars and sometimes seems to force sex based on his rap sheet. He was married to Japanese woman who divorced after what appears to be a kidnapping, forced oral copulation charge which was dropped, see below. Here is LA Times article.

His birth name most likely Timothy Joseph Roston. He has criminal rap sheet in both names from 1990 to today. Below are two links to two profiles which might be but I have no idea if they are him. Age, height, name, location....seem to match. He is an animal, environment, poverty activist. He grew up in Inglewood. He worked with Japanese artists here in LA, married a japanese person then got divorced. He worked with a DJ friend of his here in LA who then went to Japan. They seem to hang out in Japan together. The other guy had an American name then changed it to something similar to Dawud's name. I think "Abdul" is generic. I think they are Americans who got involved in religion based on their facebook pages. One friend whom Dawud seems to copy and idolize is Muhammad Abdul Salaam real name Curtis Harmon. "May 20, 2014 Curtis Harmon —> Muhammad Abdul Salaam May 20, 2015.  One year ago today I entered Islam. Allaahu Akbar!!!" They are both into skid row rights, black rights, music, dj, travel, Japan. I think Dawud's thinking may have gotten a little radical. I bet he had an American name. Can't find the name change yet. He supposedly worked for DTOURZ which is tourism. Went to Penn state which I doubt. He has a few profiles with odd info. His own description of himself in his Google+ page 

I'M JUST A SIMPLE MAN WHO ENJOYS FOOD, FUN, FISH, FASHION, FRIENDS, FOX, FISHER, FAMAR, FANTASYS    FETISH, FOREIGN FILMS, FUBU, PHAT PHARM, & FRISKY FINE FREAKS...

Some civil cases I found. He won a small claims for about $3,500 against a rent a car, was divorced from Japanese person, was evicted. All other media reporting this is the guy. I see him in Japan, Australia. He's supposedly in entertainment.

He has three items on his criminal record. I'll just post what he was convicted of as Dawud AbdulWali.

05/2013

that person's driving privilege is suspended or revoked for reckless

imprisonment in the state prison for three, six, or eight years.

236 false imprisonment also dismissed,
261a2 rape for force dismissed
273 5 a spousal abuse, dismissed. 

All of these were 2012 and 2013.

Here are criminal charges, convictions as Timothy Joseph Roston.  

Charged but dismissed

273.5.  (a) Any person who willfully inflicts corporal injury
resulting in a traumatic condition upon a victim described in
subdivision (b) is guilty of a felony, and upon conviction thereof

and imprisonment.

Guilty, driving without license, proper registration and insurance

Guilty of 31.  All persons concerned in the commission of a crime, whether it
be felony or misdemeanor, and whether they directly commit the act
constituting the offense, or aid and abet in its commission, or, not
being present, have advised and encouraged its commission, and all
persons counseling, advising, or encouraging children under the age
of fourteen years, or persons who are mentally incapacitated, to

use of any narcotic drug, and who owns, purchases, receives, or has in his or her
possession or under his or her custody or control any firearm is guilty of a felony. 

held to answer to Fish & Game violation 2118 b illegal possession or release of wildlife. I see pics of him with wildlife. I doubt he was trying to harm it. 

Guilty of theft, receipt of stolen property, perjury, driving a stolen car...and much more. The media said he just did a few petty crimes. I don't think so. I have no rap sheet at all, not even a jay walking ticket. 

As Timothy Roston he has a few evictions, small claims... He was evicted from 
1155 NORTH LA

CIENEGA BOULEVARD,UNIT1206, LOS ANGELES, CA 90069

He was sued in small claims by VIERTEL'S AUTOMOTIVE SERVICE INC VS. ROSTON, TIMOTHY J. He seems to have lost every case except one which he won by default as a car rental company went out of business. I think he sued for lost wages but can't tell.
