(Oxnard, CA) OnMonday, March 26, 2012 at about 11:30 a.m. Oxnard Police Department received a call regarding a woman who had been threatened with a knife. The incident occurred in the 5200 block of South J Street.
Officers located a 22-year-old woman who was jogging in the area. She told officers she was approached by a man who was armed with a knife. The man threatened her with the knife and forced her into a nearby alley. Because the victim was jogging she wasn’t carrying anything of value. She believes the motive of the incident was sexual assault, but the suspect never said he was going to sexually assault her nor did he try to do so.
The victim described the suspect as a light-skinned Hispanic male in his mid twenties with a mustache. He was 5’9” and about 170 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood covering his head, checkered shorts, white tube socks and black corduroy fabric slippers.
The victim was able to convince the suspect to let her go a short time later. She was not injured during the incident.
Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call Oxnard PD at (805) 385-7740 or Detective Juanita Suarez at (805) 385-3922. If you wish to remain anonymous you may call the violent crimes hotline at (805) 982-7070 or Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
