Phuong Ngoc Nguyen, a 41-year-old resident of Garden Grove, suspected of carjacking one car and trying to make off with a second while a child was in the backseat was arrested Sunday morning, in the area of 15th Street and Brookhurst Street, in Santa Ana, according to the O.C. Register.

At about 7 a.m., Phuong Ngoc Nguyen approached a victim at Brookhurst and 15th streets, demanding the person’s vehicle, a red 1995 Toyota Camry, according to My News LA.

The suspect was arrested by the SAPD, after he hid in some bushes after a hit-and-run at Corta Street and Roberts Drive, with a vehicle that matched the carjacking victim’s vehicle, according to CBS.

After crashing the carjacked Camry, Nguyen then allegedly tried to carjack another car, that was parked.  There was however a a man in the drivers seat and a young child in the backseat. The man in the car was able to remove his child before the suspect tried to get away.

One of the victims said that Nguyen had an object with him that resembled a gun.

Nguyen was arrested on two counts of alleged carjacking.


Santa Ana man arrested for tagging in Fountain Valley

Gustavo Estrella Rojo

On May 23 at approximately 3 p.m. Fountain Valley police officers responded to a call of graffiti vandalism that had just taken place to the rear of 16111 Harbor Blvd., in Fountain Valley. Three male youths were seen leaving the area on bicycles and had been observed tagging the business with graffiti.

Responding officers located subjects on bicycles that answered the description given previously.

Extensive graffiti was observed by officers to the rear of the business and the subjects fled once they saw the police. Two of the subjects managed to make their escape but one individual abandoned his bike and was found hiding on a roof in a nearby condominium complex. When approached by officers that subject, later identified as Gustavo Estrella Rojo, 20, of Santa Ana jumped off the roof and continued to run.

Rojo was soon detained by other officers. Rojo, a Post-Release Community Supervision offender with outstanding no-bail warrants, was booked at Orange County jail on the warrants and charges of felony vandalism.
