Gunman goes on a rampage in Coronado Park, landing on ferry –

CORONADO (KUSI) – Police were looking for a gunman on Sunday who engaged in a series of crimes at a Coronado park and the landing of a ferry, including robbing nearly a dozen victims and whipping a woman with a gun, authorities said.

The shooter allegedly approached a couple while they were sitting on a bench in Centennial Park around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, the Coronado Police Department posted on Facebook.

“The unidentified male displayed a firearm and demanded cell phones and valuables from both individuals,” police said. “The couple complied with the suspect’s demands. The suspect then approached a group of five people on the other side of the park. The suspect showed the weapon and took items from the victims.

The suspect walked to the Ferry Landing parking lot where he encountered another victim and demanded valuables from the woman and struck her in the head with the gun, police said. As the woman was assaulted, a group of three came across the incident and the suspect then allegedly pointed the gun at them and demanded valuables.

“The group of five victims of the Centennial Park incident found the suspect at the ferry pier, a struggle ensued and the group managed to pull the weapon away from the suspect,” police said.

The suspect was able to flee and left the scene in an unknown vehicle. Officers arrived on scene within 90 seconds of the 911 call, and a Chula Vista Police Department K-9 unit also responded but was unable to locate the suspect.

Two of the victims were slightly injured during the fight and were examined by doctors on the spot. The woman who was hit in the head was taken to hospital with injuries deemed not to be life-threatening.

The suspect was described by one of the victims as a Hispanic adult male with tattoos on his face, 20 to 24 years old, of thin build, wearing a gray or black T-shirt with black shoes.

Anyone with information about the incident has been asked to call the CPD at 619-522-7350.
