On Thursday, August 29, 2013 at approximately 2:30 pm, calls came into the Antioch Police Department concerning a subject inside of a vehicle being assaulted. Upon arrival, Officers quickly learned that a female Antioch resident was forced to stop in the middle of the street as she drove on Asilomar Drive, because a male (18-year-old Alexander Boivin) with a dog was standing in front of her. After stopping, a female juvenile opened the driver side door and began assaulting the victim. Boivin opened the passenger side door and also began assaulting the victim, who fought back.
Two bystanders witnessed the assault and pulled both suspects from the victim’s car and a brief struggle ensued. As officers arrived, the suspects fled into the park, but were detained by the bystanders and police.
The victim of this attempted carjacking was treated at a local hospital for her injuries and is expected to be released this evening.
Prior to this incident, Boivin had also committed a strong arm robbery of a mail carrier in the same park taking his cell phone. The mail carrier was not injured.
