DETAILS: Detectives from the Oxnard Police Department made an arrest today in the murder of Juan Carlos Garcia. This violent murder occurred on the morning of December 13, 2013 in the 1500 block of Alturas Street in Oxnard. Garcia was at his residence when the suspect, Alberto Govea, came to Garcia’s house. Shortly after Govea left the scene police and emergency medical personnel were called regarding a stabbing victim.

 
After a lengthy investigation, Major Crimes detectives were able to piece together evidence which led to today’s arrest. The suspect in the murder was identified as Alberto Govea, a 20 year old resident of Oxnard. Govea had been in custody at the Ventura County Jail since December on charges of criminal threats unrelated to the murder. Both Govea and Garcia knew each other however; detectives are continuing to investigate the motive for the crime. Detectives also believe Govea acted alone during the homicide. No further details will be released at this time because this is still an active investigation. 
 
The police department encourages anyone with information about this incident to contact Detective Martin Perez at (805) 385-7680. Those wishing to remain anonymous you can call the Violent Crimes Hotline at (805) 982-7070, Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477, or visit www.venturacountycrimestoppers.org  to submit a tip via text or email.
