Hollywood producer David Guillod arrested in new LA rape case

Just four months after Santa Barbara was charged with multiple counts of rape and kidnapping, Hollywood producer David Guillod was arrested Wednesday at his Sherman Oaks home on suspicion of sexual abuse.

On October 21, 2020, a woman reported being sexually assaulted by a guillotine during an evening meeting, the LAPD said in a news release on Wednesday night. After searching his home, investigators took Gillod into custody without incident and charged him at the Los Angeles Police Metropolitan Detention Center, where he is being held on 5 million bail.

Gilwood, 53, surrendered to authorities in Santa Barbara in June and was charged with raping and raping a drug victim in connection with four alleged assaults between 2012 and 2015.

Guild’s defense attorney, Philip Cohen, confirmed that his client had been arrested, but could not provide further details.

Guillod is now charged in Santa Barbara County Superior Court with 15 sexual offenses from 2012 to 2018. Earlier this month she was charged with rape and defamation in connection with the alleged October 2018 attack, according to court records.

He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Gilwood, the producer of “Atomic Blonde” and Netflix’s “Extraction” movies, ran the talent agency Primary Wave Entertainment until 2017, when actress Jessica Berth accused him of drugging and sexual assault five years ago.

Berth previously reported an alleged attack on the LAPD and is now one of four victims whose cases are being prosecuted by Santa Barbara County lawyers. Officials say Guillod is also accused of drugging and sexually abusing an employee during the December 2014 wine country retreat.

The alleged attacks took place in Santa Barbara and LA County, while lawyers in Santa Barbara are trying previous cases against Guillod because the charges were consolidated around the 2014 assault case in their jurisdiction.
