MV police arrest woman accused of multiple crimes; victims sought


The Mountain View Police Department seeks anyone who may have fallen victim to a woman who accused multiple men of domestic violence, a police spokeswoman said last week.

Sunmee Kim, 44, was arrested by detectives in Palo Alto June 7 after an investigation revealed that she had allegedly accused men of violence, had them arrested and burglarized their homes.

Investigators believe that Kim is responsible for falsifying a report to hide that she had been practicing the tactic throughout California, police said.

Mountain View police discovered Kim was wanted for similar crimes in Los Angeles and Orange counties. She was sentenced for those crimes nearly five years ago.

Kim went by the names Sunny Jean Kim, Jean Kim, Jiin and Ashley Kim. Authorities said she used KoreanCupid.com to find her victims.

Anyone who believes they may have fallen victim to Kim – or knows someone who did – is urged to contact Detective Frank Rivas at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
