Ventura Police Arrest Knife-Wielding Suspect

Thursday January 24, 2019


    Ventura police say they arrested a knife-wielding suspect who threatened a woman after asking her if she was a U-S citizen.

   The victim told police she was at the intersection of Main Street and Ventura Avenue around 8:30 PM Wednesday when a man, who was acting bizarre, walked up and asked her if she was a United States citizen?

    She told police when she answered "yes" the suspect told her she must die and began to swing what looked like a knife at her.

    The victim ran and hailed a passerby for help.

    Officers responded and found the suspect, but not a knife.

    They say that 39-year-old Wilson Conciecao was arrested for attempted assault with a deadly weapon and threats of violence.
