DETAILS:
 
On 03/01/2014 at 0700 hours officers from the Oxnard Police Department responded to 2nd and H Streets reference a possible interrupted auto burglary.  Several residents had confronted the suspect inside of a vehicle.  The suspect got out, attempted to strike one of the witnesses with a bat, and then fled the area. 
 
Officers responded to the area and were directed to the suspect’s location by an alert witness.  The suspect, a 16-year-old Port Hueneme resident, was taken into custody without incident.  A search of his property revealed property stolen from a previous auto burglary.  The suspect was booked at Ventura County Juvenile Hall for vehicle tampering, assault with a dangerous weapon, and possession of stolen property.
 
The Oxnard Police Department encourages residents to be partners in public safety as part of the Operation Safer and Stronger initiative.  This is an excellent example of a witness who saw suspicious activity, called the police, and provided the appropriate information.
 
If anyone has more information on this incident, you are encouraged to contact the Oxnard Police Department at 385-7600.  If someone wishes to remain anonymous, they can call the Violent Crimes Hotline at (805) 982-7070 or the Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477 and www.venturacountycrimestoppers.org/contactus.aspx to submit a tip via text or e-mail.
