“On Tuesday, February 7, 2023, at approximately 1648 hours, Deputies were dispatched to the 10100 Block of Houston Avenue to investigate a disturbance. The reporting party stated 30 year old Martin Natividad had a handgun and was pointing it at people in the home. Martin was well known for prior arrests to include domestic violence, weapon offenses, parole violations and gang affiliation. Additionally, Martin was on Post Release Community Supervision (PRCS).
As Deputies were enroute to the location, Kings County Sheriff’s Office Air Unit (Air-1) arrived and spotted Martin driving a go-kart in the area. Air-1 saw Martin and a female later identified as 20 year old Jasmine Ochoa Alvarez, park the go-kart on Libbie Lane and run into a residence.
Deputies contacted the victim who explained that Martin had threatened him and his family with a firearm. An elderly member of the family intervened which caused Martin to leave before he injured someone. The victim stated Martin left with the handgun.
Authorities surrounded the residence on Libbie Lane and called for Martin and Jasmine to exit the home, however they refused. The homeowner arrived and told Deputies no one should be in the home and neither Martin or Jasmine had permission to be inside.
The Kings County Sheriff’s Office SWAT team was called to the scene. Once they arrived, they began to call for Martin and Jasmine to exit the home and give up peacefully. Martin and Jasmine finally exited the residence through the front door and were taken into custody.
While Deputies searched the residence, Air-1 relayed they had watched Martin hide an object under a tarp in the backyard. Upon searching the area, a handgun matching the description provided by the victim was found under the tarp. The handgun was a black Glock style gun with an extended magazine containing several rounds of ammunition. The handgun did not have a serial number which made the weapon untraceable.
A records check on Martin revealed he had multiple felony convictions to include domestic violence, felony evading a peace officer and possession of a firearm by a prohibited person.
It was discovered Jasmine had three no bail Kings County warrants issued for her arrest. Her charges included false impersonation, interfering with a peace officer, and driving while unlicensed.
Jasmine was later booked into the Kings County Jail on her warrants and the new charge of interfering with a peace officer. She was being held without bail.
Martin was booked into the Kings County Jail on the charges of criminal threats, brandishing a firearm in a threatening manner, felon in possession of a firearm, possession of a high-capacity magazine, possession of an untraceable firearm, felon in possession of ammunition, interfering with a peace officer and violating his Post Release Community Supervision. His bail was set at $120,000.”
