(Oxnard, CA) On March 15, 2012 at about 6:40 p.m., Oxnard PD officers were dispatched to the 800 block of Wagon Wheel Road regarding a robbery at Acu-Therapy. When officers arrived they found a 65-year-old woman who had been physically assaulted and robbed. The victim sustained injuries from the assault but did not receive medical treatment for her injuries.
The victim was inside the business when two Hispanic males entered her business and demanded money. The victim was held at knife point as the two suspects took money and some video equipment from inside the business. Both suspects were armed with weapons. One of the suspects left the business and fled on foot to a vehicle parked in the parking lot. The suspects’ car was a gray Honda or beige Infiniti four-door. The other suspect physically assaulted the female victim and threatened to rape her. The victim struggled with the suspect and he eventually ran out of the business to the car waiting in the parking lot. Both suspects drove away from the scene in towards the Highway 101.
The suspects are described as two Hispanic males. The first one is about 23-24, 5’5” bald, heavy build, wearing a gray shirt and blue jeans. The second suspect is about 23-24, 5’8” with a thin build wearing a black jacket.
