On May 2, 2014, the Moorpark Police Department responded to an assault with a deadly weapon call at Corrigan's bar in Moorpark. During the incident, several subjects from a Moorpark gang allegedly brandished a baseball bat and threatened several patrons at the bar. The gang members fled the scene before police arrived; however, one of the gang members was knocked unconscious during the incident.
As a result of the investigation, detectives obtained a search warrant for seven local gang members and associates including their residences located throughout the City of Moorpark. Members of various specialized units throughout the Ventura County Sheriff's Office assisted in the execution of the search warrants.
During the searches, two documented gang members were arrested for unrelated charges. Luis Mendez was arrested for being under the influence of a controlled substance and Kevin Aguilar was arrested for a parole violation. Both subjects were booked at the East County Jail Facility.
Investigators are continuing to investigate the assault with the deadly weapon. Anyone with information on the incident is encouraged to call the Moorpark Police Department at (805) 532-2700.
