Vol. 17, No. 16 – May 1 – May 14, 2024 – Police Reports

On April 23, at 9:28pm, the Ventura Police Department received a call of a robbery that had just occurred on the walking path along Harbor Blvd, between San Jon Rd and the Ventura Pier. The victim (41-year-old female, Ventura resident) said she was walking westbound on the path when the two suspects (14-year-old male, Ventura resident and 17-year-old male, Ventura resident) approached her, demanded her purse, and brandished a handgun at her. The suspects took her purse and fled westbound on bicycles.

About 25 minutes later, a patrol officer saw two subjects matching the suspect descriptions in the 400 Block of N. Ventura Avenue. The suspects were detained and found to be in possession of a loaded gun and some of the victim’s stolen property. Both juvenile suspects were arrested and booked at juvenile hall for various charges, including armed robbery, possession of a loaded gun, possession of a “ghost” (unserialized) gun, and conspiracy to commit a crime.
