On November 9, 2011 at about 11:30 p.m. Oxnard Police officers were dispatched to the Circle K store located at 1954 North Ventura Road, regarding a robbery with a handgun that had just occurred. The suspects were last seen running north bound towards Azalea Street. Officers checked the area but were unable to locate the suspects.
About 40 minutes later, Oxnard Police officers were dispatched to the 7-Eleven store located on East Channel Islands Blvd. regarding a second armed robbery where the description of the suspects was similar to the robbery on North Ventura Road. The suspects were last seen north bound on El Dorado Avenue.
On November 10, 2011 at about 1:02 a.m., officers were dispatched to the rear of the 7-Eleven store located at Fifth St. and Ventura Rd. regarding suspicious people casing the business. Officers contacted three people in a vehicle to the rear of the store. Suspect #2 tried to run away but was apprehended a short distance away. All three suspects were identified as taking part in the two previous robberies. It appears that the three suspects were attempting a third robbery but were taken into custody prior to completing the robbery.
None of the victims was injured during either robbery and the investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with further information regarding these incidents is asked to contact Detective Steven F. Funk at (805) 385-7796, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
