Oxnard: Victim stabbed in murder attempt

Friday, May 16th, just after 12:33 p.m., officers from the Oxnard Police Department responded to a stabbing that had occurred at the 2100 block of East Channel Islands Blvd. Police learned that the victim, an 18 year old Oxnard resident, had been approached by three Hispanic males, one in his late teens, 5’10”, slender build, shaved head, another in his early 20’s, 5’08”, dark skin, light shirt, dark shorts and the third also in his early 20’s.  The men began challenging the victim as he sat in his vehicle.
