Oxnard Police Department – Incident Press Release
A masked gunman broke into an elderly couple’s home in the 1200 block of Douglas Avenue just before 6 p.m. and robbed the couple of cash.
No injuries were reported.
The victims told officers they didn’t know the suspect who reportedly carried a gun and forced his way into the house and demanded money.
The suspect was described as a Hispanic male in his 20s, 5 feet 8 inches, wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt with white lettering, and the hoodie pulled over his head and a black mask.
