UPDATE: Police Seek Killer in Oxnard Park Stabbing

Oxnard police have identified 55-year-old Oxnard resident Labh Nigah as Thursday’s homicide victim at Sierra Linda Park.

Investigators say Nigah was walking in Sierra Linda Park when he was attacked and stabbed repeatedly.

Officials say the Sierra Linda neighborhood is a safe and prosperous residential area that has rarely experienced crimes like this.

The Oxnard Police Department is providing enhanced uniformed presence in the area.

They encourage any resident or community member in the area to flag down an officer if they have information to provide regarding this incident.

The City of Oxnard is offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of suspect or suspects in homicide cases.

[Thursday, November 13, 2014] Officers responded to a man down at the park in the 1000 block of Indigo Place at 8:40 a.m. When police arrived they found a 55-year-old man dead on the south side of the park.

Officers from the Oxnard Police Department said the victim had suffered fatal stab wounds. They spent more than 10 hours gathering evidence at the scene. As of Friday night no one had been arrested for the murder.

The victim was an Oxnard resident whose name is being withheld until his family is notified.

The park where the man was found shared a chain link fence with Sierra Linda Elementary School. Police said there were no indications that any suspects entered the campus or at any time any of the students were in danger. As a precaution school officials put Sierra Linda Elementary School on a light lockdown.

The lockdown let students be released to their parents at the end of their school day, but the students were not allowed outside for recess. School officials said this was to shield them from the police activity and to not impact the Oxnard Police Department’s investigation.

Police do not have suspects at this time. They ask anyone with information to give them a call at (805) 385-7688. If you wish to remain anonymous, you may call the violent crimes hotline at (805)982-7070.

This is the seventh homicide that has occurred in the city of Oxnard in 2014.
