Patrol Deputies assigned to the Fillmore Police Station arrested (S) Cesar Pedro Villanueva, after he stabbed two people inside the Dollar General store located at 1154 Ventura Street in the City of Fillmore.

On August 20th, 2020, at 2:47 PM, patrol deputies responded to the Dollar General Store to a call of a stabbing that had just occurred. When deputies arrived at the scene, they observed a male subject, later identified as Cesar Villanueva, running away from the Dollar General Store, holding a folding knife in his hand. Villanueva also matched the description of the suspect. Deputies attempted to stop Villanueva, but he was uncooperative and non-compliant with their verbal commands. Deputies were able to prevent Villanueva from fleeing and detained him.

Ventura County Sheriff Major Crimes and Fillmore Police Station Detectives responded to the scene to assist in the investigation. Detectives determined that Villanueva was inside the Dollar General Store when he confronted a delivery driver who was stocking product inside the store. Villanueva stabbed this victim in the arm with a knife. Villanueva then stabbed a second male victim in the chest and the back with the same knife. The second victim was merely shopping at the store when confronted by Villanueva.

Both victims had moderate injuries and were transported to the Ventura County Medical Center via ambulance. Both were treated for their injuries and later released.

Villanueva was arrested and charged for two felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon, and one count of resisting arrest. Evidence was recovered that directly linked Villanueva to the crime and he was positively identified as the suspect. Villanueva was booked into the Pre-Trial Detention Facility and his bail was set at $50,000.

Detectives are seeking any additional witnesses or potential video evidence of the suspect or the incident.

Ventura County Crime Stoppers will pay up to $1,000 reward for information, which leads to the arrest and criminal complaint against the person(s) responsible for this crime. The caller may remain anonymous. The call is not recorded. Call Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477).
