The Ventura County Sheriff's Office says it has arrested a man for an alleged hate crime in Camarillo over the weekend.
They say that around 2:45 PM on Saturday, April 3rd, 35-year-old Kyle Davis of Thousand Oaks is alleged to have pulled up next to a vehicle driven by a 70-year-old African American man on Mission Oaks Boulevard at Rancho Calleguas Drive and started shouting racial slurs and derogatory statements at the man.
Deputies say Davis then is alleged to have thrown an object at the man's vehicle.
The man's vehicle had the letters BLM displayed.
BLM stands for Black Lives Matter.
The man was not injured and reported the incident immediately to deputies in Camarillo.
Monday, April 5th, detectives say they served a search warrant at Davis's Thousand Oaks home.
They also served Davis with a gun violence restraining order which authorized them to temporarily seize Davis's firearms, ammunition, and magazines.
Davis was arrested and booked into the Ventura County Jail for assault, elder abuse, and violating a person's civil rights.
He was released after posting $50,000 bail and is due in court on April 19th to be arraigned.
