    Oxnard Police Department – Incident Press Release

    Francisco Camarena, 52, Oxnard resident

    On Monday, June 8, 2019, at about 3:00 a.m., officers responded to a family dispute in the 500 block of Sherwood Way. Family members reported that Francisco Camarena, had accosted them and broken out windows in the house. When police officers arrived, Camarena got into a vehicle and sped off and hit a parked car. Officers pursued Camarena through several south Oxnard neighborhoods, but abandoned the pursuit due to the unsafe conditions.

    A short time later, officers found Camarena’s vehicle in the 1500 block of S. Oxnard Bl. near an apartment complex. Camarena was in the vehicle and armed with a machete. Camarena refused to drop the machete and come out of the car. The SWAT team responded and attempted to negotiate Camarena’s surrender from the vehicle.

    For over two hours, negotiators tried to convince Camarena to surrender, but he refused. SWAT officers used compliance weapons including pepper balls, CNS gas, and a Ventura County Sheriff’s K-9 to apprehend Camarena.

    Camarena was taken by ambulance to a local hospital and booked in Ventura County Jail on multiple charges, including vandalism, felony reckless evading and obstructing police. He was also wanted on several misdemeanor warrants.

    S. Oxnard Bl. Between Date St. and Commercial Ave. was closed during the two-hour standoff.
