An attempted carjacking at the Ralph's Shopping Center in Camarillo involving two suspects, one armed with a gun.

On July 25, 2009, at approximately 9:00 PM, the Camarillo Police Department responded to a call of an “attempt carjacking.” The victim reported he had parked his vehicle in the parking lot of Ralphs Supermarket. As the victim was getting out of his vehicle, two male Hispanic suspects approached him. One suspect had a semi-automatic handgun and the other suspect had a knife. The suspects demanded the victim give them the keys to his vehicle. The victim refused and struck one of the suspects in the face. The victim was then struck in the face by one of the suspects. The victim was able to get away from the suspects and call for help. The suspects immediately fled the area on foot and have not been identified or located. The victim sustained a laceration to his face during the struggle. The victim did not require medical attention at the time.
