On 11/5/10 at approximately 11:42 P.M., officers responded to a fight at the Camelot Room Bar located at 1331 W. Gonzales Rd., Oxnard. District Police Officers conducting a bike patrol in the area arrived just as the fight appeared to be breaking up. They located one victim with a significant laceration to her face and the top of her head. During the investigation, it was learned that the suspects began to attack the younger victim in the bar and, when the older victim tried to intervene, she was cut on the face and head by one of the suspects. The incident may have been precipitated by an argument between one of the victims and one of the suspects over an uninvolved male.

The suspects fled the area by jumping over a back fence from the business. The younger victim received only minor injuries requiring no medical attention. The older victim was transported by Gold Coast Ambulance to Ventura County Medical Center with severe lacerations to her face and head.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact Detective Steven F. Funk at (805) 385-7796, e-mail or you may leave a message on the Violent Crimes Hotline at (805) 982-7070. To give an anonymous tip call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-TIPS (8477).

An investigation is continuing.
