Assault with a Deadly Weapon Arrests


On Friday, July 1, 2016 at 2:05 p.m., patrol officers responded to a call for a fight involving three males involving possible baseball bats in the 3500 block East Main Street.  When officers arrived on scene they found the victim suffering from non-life threatening injuries he sustained after being struck multiple times by a pipe and metal chair.  The suspects had fled the scene in their vehicle prior to officers’ arrival, however other responding officers located them on Telephone Road near Main Street.
The investigation revealed the suspects, Brian Smith, 43, and Brian Smith, 21, who are father and son, were involved in a physical fight with each other when the victim, who was not known by the suspects, attempted to intervene.  One suspect picked up a metal pipe and began striking the victim multiple times and the other suspect then used a metal chair and struck the victim. At the conclusion of the investigation, both suspects were booked into Ventura County Jail on the charge of assault with a deadly weapon.  The victim was treated and released by Ventura Fire and AMR for his injuries.
