March 26, 2002 – Ventura County – Perhaps the plethora of cable television channels and internet websites featuring depictions of the widest possible variety of sexual behaviors between every conceivable combination of individuals spanning the entire spectrum of gender identity, age, species, and physical characteristics simply wasn’t enough to truly satisfy the uncontrollable sexual urges of 27-year-old Oxnard resident Martin Arias. That inability to restrain himself appears to have lead to another of his many arrests this morning.
According to Oxnard Police Department spokesman Sgt. Scott Aaron, Arias had been under investigation pursuant to “several reported incidents of lewd acts in public” that first occurred in Oxnard on January 27, 2020. Additional reports were filed on March 17, 2020 that indicated “a suspect grabbing female victims from behind.”
At that point, the Oxnard Police Department’s Family Protection Unit, working in concert with the OPD Crime Analysis Unit and the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, conducted an intensive investigation that ultimately identified Arias as the principal suspect in “seven reported incidents of indecent exposure and sexual battery” within Ventura County during the January-March time frame.
As Arias was already in custody at Ventura County Jail on suspicion of violating the terms of his parole, detectives arrested him once again and filed charges with the Ventura County District Attorney alleging five separate cases of “sexual battery” and two additional counts of indecent exposure. He remains in custody, with his bail “enhanced” in the amount of $300,000.
