Ventura robbery attempt likely gang related

KABC | November 28, 2013

VENTURA, Calif. — A search is underway for a suspect with possible gang connections who beat up and attempted to rob a man in Ventura.

Shortly before 4 p.m. Wednesday, Ventura officers were called to the 5200 block of Shenandoah Street about a robbery attempt.

Investigators say the victim was walking in the area when a dark SUV with numerous people inside stopped alongside him. One suspect exited the car and asked what gang the victim was in.

When the victim denied belonging to a gang, the suspect yelled out a local gang name and began repeatedly hitting the victim in the head and torso.

Police say the suspect demanded money from the victim and rifled through his pockets. When he came up empty, the suspect returned to the awaiting SUV, which was last seen fleeing in the area north of Chalmette Street.

Officers searched the area but could not locate the suspect. The victim sustained minor injuries from the incident.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male in his 20s, about 5 feet 7 inches tall with short, dark hair and a thin build.
