The observations of an alert Oxnard resident led to the arrest of a juvenile suspected in two vehicle crimes early this morning.
At 0654 hours, Oxnard police received a call of an auto theft in progress in the 700 block of Forest Park Blvd. The 30-year-old victim (whose identity is being withheld by police) watched his vehicle, a Chevrolet pick-up, being driven without his consent. The victim chased the suspect on foot and detained the juvenile until police arrived.
At 0654 hours, a second vehicle burglary was reported to Oxnard police in the same apartment complex. Stereo equipment was stolen from a Dodge pick-up.
Entry to both vehicles was made by force. Evidence recovered indicates the juvenile suspect was responsible for both crimes. All stolen property was recovered and returned to the owners.
The suspect was transported to St. John’s Regional Medical Center for treatment of facial injuries received during a brief altercation with the victim. The victim was also injured but did not require medical attention. The juvenile was placed into Juvenile Hall on two counts of auto burglary, one count of theft of automobile, and violation of probation for a previous attempted burglary. An investigation is continuing.
