At 0037 hours, an Oxnard police officer was flagged down by two male subjects, 19-year old and 20-year old Oxnard residents, in the 2300 Block of El Dorado Avenue. The two told the officer they had been assaulted and robbed. Further, they pointed out the car that the suspects were in.
The officer immediately affected a stop on the vehicle. One subject, a male wearing a bandana and black hooded sweatshirt, fled on foot. The officer stayed with the suspect vehicle and detained three subjects. Other officers arrived and assisted in the arrest of Salvador Avalos, Efrain Parra, and Jose Villa Lobos for robbery and other charges.
There had been two other robberies earlier in the evening. One occurred at 2219 hours in the 400 Block of East Pleasant Valley Road. A 17-year old Oxnard resident was robbed of his wallet and cell phone. Four suspects were described including one wearing a bandana.
Another robbery occurred at 0013 hours in the 100 Block of Dolores Court. A 19-year old Oxnard resident was beaten and robbed. This victim was treated at SJRMC with moderate wounds to his head and face. Again, multiple suspects were described and fled.
Officers and investigators are continuing their investigations and believe all three robberies are related.
Persons with information regarding these robberies are encouraged to call Sergeant Alex Arnett at (805) 486-6211, or remain anonymous by calling the Violent Crime Hotline at (805) 982-7070 or Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
