Santa Barbara County authorities are holding a Hollywood producer in jail for allegedly committed numerous sex crimes, including kidnapping and raping drugged or unconscious women.
David Guillod, 53, the executive producer of Hollywood films including “Extraction” and “Atomic Blonde,” is accused of sexually assaulting women over a multi-year period in Santa Barbara County and Los Angeles.

Santa Barbara detectives conducted the investigation in cooperation with the Los Angeles Police Department, Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and the Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office.
