Isla Vista Foot Patrol Deputies Attempt to Locate Suspects
Isla Vista - Santa Barbara County Sheriff's deputies are attempting to locate several suspects wanted for
committing crimes in the early morning hours of Saturday, August 2, 2014. In each of the incidents, the
suspect fled before law enforcement arrived. The Sheriff's Office is requesting public assistance to help
locate the suspects. It's unclear at this point if the crimes are related.
The first crime was reported at approximately 3:20 a.m. in the 6600 block of Sueno Rd. The victim was
walking home when he was approached by a college-aged Hispanic male associated with a dark colored
Infiniti. The suspect displayed a handgun and demanded money from the victim. When the victim was
unable to provide the suspect with money or belongings, he fled the area. The victim further described the
suspect as having a dark complexion, black hair and wearing a dark colored zip-up sweatshirt.
The second robbery occurred at approximately 3:30 a.m. in the 6500 block of Sabado Tarde Rd. The
victim reported being approached by a Hispanic college-aged male who was walking from the El
Embarcadero area. The suspect approached the victim and asked if he had change for a $20. When the
victim opened his wallet and showed him the change, the suspect removed a handgun from his back pants
pocket, pointed it at the victim and demanded the money. The suspect took the cash and fled the area.
The victim further described the suspect as approximately 5' 9" tall, 140 pounds with medium length curly,
dark hair and dark skin. The suspect was wearing jeans and a dark sweater.
Also at approximately 3:30 a.m., a resident inside her apartment in the 6600 block of Abrego Rd. observed
a Hispanic male in his late thirties standing on her patio looking at her. When the suspect saw her, he fled
the area. The resident left the apartment and when she returned thirty minutes later her roommate
reported waking up and finding a Hispanic male standing over her and masturbating. She screamed and
the suspect kissed her on the face and fled out the back door. The roommate described the male as dark
skinned with a shaved head, about 5'6" tall and 220 pounds. He was wearing a baggy white t-shirt and
baggy blue plaid shorts.
