DETAILS:

On 2/25/14, at approximately 1635 hours, officers from the Oxnard Police Department were dispatched to the 100 block of North Hayes Avenue regarding a carjacking that had just occurred. Two victims told officers that several Hispanic males attacked them by kicking and punching them. During the assault, one of the victims fell to the ground. The suspects rummaged through his pockets and removed his car keys. The other victim said one of the suspects brandished a knife at him and demanded his money and wallet. The suspects then fled the area with the victim’s vehicle and property.
 
While officers were investigating the carjacking crime, several 911 calls were received of a traffic collision in the 1600 block of Universe Circle. The vehicle involved in the collision matched the description of the carjacked vehicle.
 
Officers from the Oxnard Police Department’s Special Enforcement Unit (SEU) arrived at the scene of the vehicle collision and observed several subjects fleeing on foot. Four subjects were apprehended by police and positively identified by witnesses and the victims as the suspects that committed the carjacking. The suspects were identified as 21-year old Eric Dominguez (Transient), 21-year old Mario Perez of Oxnard, 18-year old Hernan Hernandez of Oxnard, and a 16-year old juvenile of Oxnard (name withheld due to age). Eric Dominguez is a documented Colonia Chiques gang member and has been served with the Colonia Chiques gang injunction.
 
All four suspects were arrested for carjacking with the special allegation that the crime was committed for the benefit of a criminal street gang.
 
The 16-year old juvenile is one of two suspects in a foiled robbery attempt that took place on 2/23/14 at 1930 hours. In that incident, the juvenile along with an adult attempted to rob a patron at gunpoint inside the Guadalajara Café, located at 166 North Hayes Avenue in Oxnard. The adult suspect was arrested and charged with robbery. The juvenile is now facing robbery charges for his role in the incident at the Guadalajara Café.
 
The Oxnard Police Department will continue to investigate both these cases in hopes of identifying other individuals that might be involved in these crimes.
                                                                                                                             
If anyone has information about these incidents, they are encouraged to call the Oxnard Police Department at (805) 385-7796.  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.
