Camarillo – Just after 10 p.m. on Sunday September 9th, Camarillo police patrol units responded to a 911 Emergency call reporting a violent confrontation between two men on a neighborhood street, and found area resident Julian Sanchez Hernandez, 24, on the sidewalk with serious blunt force trauma to his head.
According to Ventura County Sheriff’s Detective Greg Gibson, “Hernandez was immediately transported via ambulance” to a local hospital for treatment. It was at that point that Camarillo Police Department officers began field interviews of witnesses at the scene, subsequently identifying Ricardo Valadez Aguilar, 20, as the suspected perpetrator of the alleged crime. Gibson reported to the media that witnesses that night indicated to police that Aguilar “had stepped out of a car and approached Hernandez over a personal matter which led to Aguilar swinging a baseball bat” and hitting Hernandez repeatedly on the head.
With multiple witness accounts leading to the identification of Aguilar, patrol deputies located him at his residence on the west side of Camarillo. “He was contacted and arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and taken into custody without incident,” Gibson reported. Aguilar was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and booked into the Ventura County Pre-Trial Detention Facility where his bail was set at $20,000.
The investigation into the attack continues, with Detectives from Camarillo Police Department’s Investigations Unit requesting that anyone with additional information about these events contact Sr. Deputy Greg Gibson at 805-388-5116.
