Ventura County – When an argument between a man and a woman gets to the point where one is verbally assaulting the other with threats of imminent death while doing everything possible to physically make good on those threats, one might well ask “Where’s the love?”
That question was likely never asked in the early morning hours of July 22nd at the Thousand Oaks Premier Inn Motor Hotel when a 911 Emergency call to the Thousand Oaks Police Substation was received reporting possible domestic violence taking place on the premises.
According to Ventura County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Det. Matt Theobald, responding deputies witnessed 26-year-old Los Angeles resident Celebration Ferguson engaged in “a physical altercation” with a 63-year-old male resident of Oxnard.
Once deputies made their presence known and restrained Ferguson from further attacks upon her victim, they took witness statements and gathered evidence that indicated “that Ferguson attempted to strangle the victim while yelling she would kill the victim.”
The totality of evidence and statements were processed through additional investigation and interviews of uninvolved witnesses upon the arrival of VCSD East County Major Crimes detectives. The cops ultimately came to the conclusion that Ferguson was the offending party and took her into custody.
Ferguson was transported to Ventura County Jail, where she was booked on a charge of attempted murder, with her bail set at $5,000,000.
