Two teens arrested for assault and attempted carjacking of Antioch woman

By Sergeant Steve Bias, Antioch Police Community Policing Bureau

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.

Boivin is a known gang member. He has no adult convictions on his criminal history. Boivin was booked into the Martinez Detention Facility for numerous charges related to felony assault, carjacking, robbery, and gang enhancements.

The juvenile was booked into juvenile hall for charges related to felony assault, carjacking, vandalism, and gang enhancement.

No booking photos immediately available.

    In my opinion, if you see thugs / gang bangers who attempt to stop you while you are driving just run them over.

    This is Antioch. The police can’t help you. Thankfully those bystanders were they because if they weren’t the female victim would have been dead.

    WE NEED CCW LICENSES IN ANTIOCH! Every day someone gets robbed, assaulted, raped, or shot here.
    Remember the police are only 20 minutes away if you have been shot.

    The headline for this article should have read… Two CCW Licensed Samaritans Saves Female from Gang Rape and Murder, Both Thugs Dead. Now doesn’t that make give it a much happier tune?

    I think that it is ridiculous how much information the media leaves out. Who wants to know why the woman was hospitalized?? Because they were eating her legs and she has chunks missing. I’ve grown up in Antioch my whole life and it’s become such a disgraceful city. But nothing bothers me more than how the media, the APD, no one lets out how bad it truly is here. Under 10 homicides is the count for 2013. That’s been in the last week or so.

      Thank you for your comment and for reading the Herald.
      I’m not sure if your comment is directed at us. When it comes to crime issues, we pretty much just publish the news releases we receive from the Antioch Police Department. Unfortunately, we don’t have the staff to do the investigative reporting. We leave that up to the people to provide or the larger newspapers in the area.
