Ventura Man Robbed at Knifepoint

Ventura Police Department – Incident Press Release

On May 25th at 9:08 the Ventura Police Department Command Center received a 911 call from a 26-year-old male victim reporting that he had just been robbed by two suspects, one armed with a knife, and his bicycle was taken. He reported the suspects were last seen fleeing from the park westbound on Thompson Blvd. Officers responding to the call saw the suspects within a block from the park and detained them near the corner of California St. and Thompson Blvd.

During the investigation officers learned that the victim and the two suspects, later identified as Dillon Webb and Colton Braga, were sitting together in the park when for unknown reasons Webb suddenly punched the victim and attempted to take his bike. As the two struggled for possession of the bike, Webb removed a knife and threatened the victim. Braga then took the bike from the victim, at which time he and Webb fled from the park.

Webb and Braga were positively identified by the victim and arrested. Both were arrested for robbery and conspiracy. Braga had an additional charge of a parole violation.

The victim was not injured as a result of this crime. The bike was recovered and returned to the victim.

A review of the Ventura County Superior Court website shows that Webb has several convictions for resisting arrest, giving false information to an officer, and possession of a controlled substance. Braga is on parole and shows to have a prior conviction in 2017 for battery.
