DETAILS:

Yesterday afternoon, as Oxnard police officers surrounded an apartment building in search of a wanted subject, a man jumped from a second floor apartment, fracturing his leg. The man was not wanted.

On October 5, 2010 at 2:45 p.m., Oxnard police received a call of a possible wanted subject inside an apartment in the 300 block of W. Vineyard Ave. The reporting party also advised the wanted subject was armed with a handgun.

Officers surrounded the apartment building and were preparing to make contact at the address where the wanted subject was reported to be hiding when a male jumped from a second floor apartment window to a concrete patio. The male lay motionless on the ground. Assuming the subject was injured in the fall, officers eventually evacuated the man to awaiting Fire and EMS personnel. He was transported by ambulance to St. John’s Regional Medical Center where the man was treated for a fractured ankle.

The man was not wanted; why he jumped remains unclear. The reported wanted subject was never located.
