On September 18th at 10:48am, the Ventura Police Department Command Center received a 911 call of an attempted theft of a cell phone that just occurred at Starbucks, 6128 Telegraph Rd.  The suspect, later identified as Ryan Leavitt, was described as being a vagrant and was fleeing the area on a bicycle.   Officers responded and located Leavitt nearby in the parking lot of the shopping center. 

During the investigation, officers determined there were multiple victims.  The first victim was a 76-year-old male who was inside Starbucks sitting at a table with several other individuals.  The victim’s cell phone was on the table next to him when Leavitt suddenly approached the table and took the phone.  The victim grabbed Leavitt’s armed and had to forcefully take the phone back from him.  Leavitt then turned towards the second victim, a 61-year-old female, sitting at the same table and made a threatening statement about taking her purse.  Hearing this, the victim’s husband grabbed the purse to protect it.  Leavitt left the business and tried to flee the area on his bike. 

Leavitt was arrested and later booked into the Ventura County Jail for attempted robbery, theft from person (felony) and elder abuse.  No one was injured as a result of this incident.
