    Oxnard Police Department – Incident Press Release

    On May 23, 2020 at approximately 11:56 A.M., officers from the Oxnard Police Department were dispatched to the 2100 block of Mariposa Street, in reference to an attempted kidnapping that just occurred. When officers arrived, they contacted the victim and several witnesses. As the investigation progressed they learned prior to the attempted kidnapping the suspect tried forcing his way into another victim’s residence as well. During the attempted kidnap he held a sharp object near the victim’s neck, before neighbors intervened and stopped the crime from continuing. Police arrived quickly thereafter and the suspect broke into a nearby neighbor’s residence, to which he did not live at.  Members of the Oxnard Police Department SWAT team, K-9 team, Crisis Negotiation Team and Violent Crimes Unit responded to assist. At approximately 5:45 P.M. the suspect was taken into custody with the assistance of Police K-9 “Capone.” The suspect was additionally in possession of stolen property from the house that he broke into. The suspect was identified as Rafael Larumbe. He was taken to Ventura County Medical Center for medical treatment to injuries he sustained during the K-9 apprehension. Larumbe was arrested for attempted residential burglary, attempted kidnapping, assault with a deadly weapon and residential burglary. There is no further information available at this time.
