On 7/3/13 at about 1945 hours, the Oxnard Police Department responded to a call of a robbery that just occurred in the 600 Block of West Channel Islands Boulevard.  The suspects were described as two Hispanic males, both in their 20’s, wearing sweatshirts and beanies.  A machete was used by the suspects during the robbery.  Property taken was cash and other items.
At about the same time the call was dispatched, an officer observed a suspicious vehicle occupied with subjects matching the description of the suspects.  The officer attempted to stop the vehicle, and a short pursuit ensued.  One male subject fled from the vehicle as the vehicle ultimately stopped and was detained a short distance way.  The remaining occupants remained inside the vehicle and were detained. 
Officers contacted the victim of the robbery.  The victim positively identified both the person who fled from the car, and an additional male who remained in the vehicle, as the subjects who committed the robbery.   The males were identified as Juan Ledezma, a 21 year old Ventura resident, and Alexis Sandoval, an 18 year old Oxnard resident.  They were both arrested for robbery.  Ledezma was also arrested for evading in a vehicle; Sandoval was also arrested for outstanding warrants. 
Anyone with additional information is asked to call the Oxnard Police Department.  An investigation is continuing.
DATE / TIME PREPARED:  7/4/13, 12:15AM.
