The Isla Vista Foot Patrol responded to an assault, vandalism and several burglaries this weekend.
Early Saturday morning, officers received a report that a female was physically attacked by six individuals on the 6700 block of Abrego Road. IVFP Lt. Ray Vuillemainroy said one of the suspects confronted the victim and proceeded to beat her to the ground.
“When she left the party a group of four Hispanic females and two Hispanic males walked toward her from across the street,” Vuillemainroy said. “One of the females, who the victim described as approximately 19 years old and extremely heavy-set, proceeded to throw [the victim] on the pavement and punch and kick her in the face.”
According to Vuillemainroy, two other women in the group also attacked the victim before stealing the victim’s purse and leaving the scene.
“After the suspect finished assaulting her, two of the other female suspects jumped in and kicked her,” Vuillemainroy said. “The victim believes she was attacked for 30 seconds.”
The first burglary the IVFP responded to occurred Friday morning on the 6700 block of Trigo Road. Vuillemainroy said the suspect entered the residence during a party and stole several valuables.
“During a get-together at the victim’s residence, an unknown suspect took an iPod touch and laptop,” Vuillemainroy said. “The merchandise was valued at $1,000. No suspect info was available.”
Additionally, the IVFP arrested a man on the 6600 block of Del Playa Drive for destruction of property.
Vuillemainroy said a deputy spotted the suspect vandalizing a water meter and found further evidence of defacement on his person.
“Deputy Roberts observed the suspect writing on a Goleta Water District meter,” Vuillemainroy said. “The suspect was contacted and found to be in possession of several graffiti markers. Paint was also located on both of the suspect’s hands and Deputy Roberts found three other walls with graffiti vandalism.”
Officers also dealt with multiple alcohol-related crimes throughout the weekend, issuing five citations for noise violations, four for open containers, three for minors in possession and three for public urination. The IVFP also made four arrests for public intoxication.
