Oxnard Man Arrested After Slow Speed Pursuit

Friday January 14, 2022

     There was a slow-speed pursuit Friday morning through a large portion of Oxnard.

     It started around 2-20 AM when officers tried to stop a vehicle for a traffic violation.

     The driver turned out to be a 38-year-old Oxnard man wanted on a felony warrant.

     He failed to yield and that started the pursuit that traveled through surface streets through much of the north end of the city.

     While speeds were slow, the suspect ran several stop signs and red lights.

     Oxnard police used spike strips and were able to flatten all the tires on the suspect vehicle and he finally stopped around 3 AM in the area of Devonshire Drive and Ventura Road and the suspect was taken into custody.
