DETAILS:

In the past few days there have been two incidents in which young children were contacted by an individual while walking down the street.

The first incident occurred April 17th at 4:25 pm and involved a 12 year old girl who was approached in the 2000 block of North Ventura Road. The suspect approached her on foot and asked her to come with him. She declined to do so and the suspect returned to his vehicle and drove away. The suspect was described as a black male, unknown age, 5 feet 10 inches tall, weighing 150 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with black pants and black glasses. He also had on black slip-on Vans Tennis shoes. The vehicle was described as a black 2001 Mercedes E320, two-door, with an unknown license plate.

On April 21st at 3:30 pm an eight year old boy was playing near the intersection of Cabrillo and Gallatin when he saw a four door vehicle with dark windows, driver side window rolled down parked along the road. The driver asked if he wanted a ride home. The victim replied no and ran home. The victim described the suspect as a black male in his mid 30's, dark hair and eyes, with a shaved head and wide nose. He was wearing a white t-shirt and driving a newer four door Honda, grey in color with an unknown license plate.

Parents are encouraged to remind their children to avoid contact with strangers and to report such incidents to their parents, police, and school officials (if it occurs while the student is walking to or from school).

Oxnard patrol officers and school resource officers are being extra diligent in keeping an eye out for such incidents.

Anyone with any information about these incidents is asked to contact Oxnard Police Department 385-7740 and or Crime Tip Hotline, 805-486-8362.
