Stabbing and Rollover Collision
On October 22, at approximately 2:30 am, officers were dispatched to a single vehicle rollover collision on Thompson Blvd., near Seaward Avenue. When officers arrived, they discovered two of the three vehicle occupants had been stabbed several times.
The ensuing investigation revealed the three victims were on the beach promenade near Paseo de Playa when they were confronted by two male suspects in their 20’s. A verbal altercation took place and one of the suspects produced a knife, stabbing two of the three victims multiple times.
While trying to drive to the hospital, the driver became unconscious due to the injuries he sustained from being stabbed. The vehicle struck a curb and overturned. The two passengers with stab wounds were transported to a local hospital where they are listed in critical, but stable condition.
Ventura Police Detectives responded and have taken over the investigation. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Detective Sergeant Bill Dolan at 805-339-4444.
