On December 14, 2015, Ventura County Sheriff's deputies from the Camarillo Patrol Station responded to the intersection of Las Posas Road and Daily Drive in reference to a stabbing victim. At the location, patrol deputies found a male victim with multiple stab wounds to the back and neck region. The male victim was transported to an area hospital and treated for his injuries.
