Moorpark gang skirmish with Simi Valley gang

05:40 | ,

Several members of a Moorpark gang who live in Simi came to 1184 Arcane St. to pick up a female who was visiting the occupants, members of a rival Simi Valley gang. A fight broke out in front of the residence at 10:53 p.m., according to police reports.
Simi Police Sgt. Darin Muehler, who works in the department's Special Problems Section, said the fight was not over the female but erupted due to prior run-ins between the individuals.
Someone inside the home on Arcane made the initial call to officers, Muehler said. "We don't get called on every time there's a skirmish between groups," Lt. Mike King said. "But when it is in a public place . . . we do get calls."
During the fight, Ronald "Tony" Anderson and a 16yearold juvenile, both of Simi Valley, received knife wounds to their head, chest, neck and hands/arms along with blunt trauma injuries caused by a bat. The suspects fled the scene in a vehicle immediately after the attack. The victims' injuries were not life-threatening. After their release from Simi Valley Hospital, both victims were arrested on warrants for unrelated charges. "They were not arrested for charges stemming from this fight," Muehler said, adding that it is up to the district attorney's office to file further charges against the victims. The suspects' vehicle was seen on First Street in Simi Valley the next day. German DelRio, 20, and a 16-year-old juvenile were arrested without incident. A third suspect, a 17-year-old juvenile, was arrested on Feb. 13 at Apollo High School in connection with the assault. King and Muehler said this type of attack is uncommon in Simi. The last gang-related incident, also a stabbing, was reported in October 2007 and remains unsolved.
"This is not a frequent occurrence," Muehler said. "The big picture should be . . . the stabbing happened on a Tuesday night, by Friday morning everyone was in jail." Both officers said the department's gang unit understands the dynamics between rival gangs and is continually checking up on known affiliates.
"This was wrapped up so quickly because we know these guys," Muehler said. "We know who and where the players are."
The Special Problems Section is continuing to investigate the incident.
