On March 17, 2017 at approximately 10:15 pm officers from the Oxnard Police Department responded to a call of a stabbing victim in the 1600 block of Pacific Ave. When Officers arrived on scene they located a 22 year old Oxnard resident with a stab wound to the back. The victim was transported to a local hospital in stable condition.  The suspect was described as a male subject with a shaved head.

On March 18, 2017 at approximately 1845 hours a witness to the incident located the suspect in the area of Channel Islands Blvd. and Statham Blvd.  Officers detained the 36 year old Oxnard resident, Freddie Castro.  Castro was positively identified as the suspect from the stabbing. Castro was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and is currently being held on a $30,000 bail at the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department Main Jail. Castro is a Post Release Offender and convicted felon.

The Post Release Offender program was created by Assembly Bill 109 – the 2011 Public Safety Realignment. This program mandates that individuals sentenced to non-violent, non-serious or non-sex offenses will serve their sentences in county jails instead of state prison.  The public should be aware that release under AB 109 is based on the offender’s most recent commitment offense, prior convictions are not considered.

If anyone has further information, they are encouraged to call Detective Michael Velasquez at (805) 385-8287.  If you wish to remain anonymous you may call the violent crimes hotline at (805) 982-7070 or Ventura County Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
