On 8-26-10, at approximately 1520 hours, Oxnard Police Officers responded to the area of the Oxnard Police Department reference a subject chasing three people for previously taking his telephone.

The victim reported that he had been at the Lucky Supermarket (2401 Saviers Road) parking lot at about 3:00 PM putting his one year old child into a car seat of his vehicle. The three suspects approached the victim and entered the vehicle while demanding a ride. One suspect obtained a power drill that was inside of the victim’s vehicle and pointed it at the victims head while activating the drill. All three suspects again demanded a ride. One suspect even went so far as to grab the one year-old’s arm and demand that the victim give them a ride. The suspects also removed several items from the vehicle and took possession of them.

The victim drove the suspects in his vehicle, but instead of driving to where they demanded, he drove to the Oxnard Police Department. One of the suspects again put the power drill to the victim’s head and demanded the victim continue driving, however he stopped none the less. The three suspects fled the area, also taking his telephone. The telephone was recovered by the victim, who then called the police.

All three suspects were located near the police station, arrested and lodged at Juvenile Hall for suspicion of carjacking, kidnapping, robbery, child endangerment, conspiracy to commit a crime, brandishing a weapon, criminal threats, dissuading a witness from reporting a crime, and vandalism. The victim did not suffer injuries during the robbery.

The suspect’s names are not being released due to their ages, and the victim’s name is not being released at this time.
