On September 23, 2021, at 12:39 PM, deputies assigned to the Jurupa Valley Station responded to a carjacking at the AutoZone parking lot located in the 3700 block of Riverview Drive in the City of Jurupa Valley. Deputies learned the victim was sitting in a Mercedes E320 when a male suspect put a large knife to the victim's neck and ordered him out of the vehicle. The suspect fled the area in the stolen Mercedes. A few minutes later, deputies responded to a robbery at the AM/PM located in the 2900 block of Rubidoux Boulevard involving the carjacking suspect and stolen Mercedes. The suspect brandished a knife and stole a 12-pack of beer.
At approximately 1429 hours, deputies responded to a residence in the 3600 block of Grandview Avenue for a family disturbance. On arrival, deputies located the stolen Mercedes parked in the driveway. The suspect was identified as Jesus Camacho, a 33-year-old resident of Jurupa Valley. Camacho armed himself with two large kitchen knives, and he refused to comply or surrender. The suspect barricaded himself within the residence. The Special Enforcement Bureau (SWAT) responded to assist with the apprehension. A search warrant for the home was authored and served. The suspect was taken into custody and later booked into the Robert Presley Detention Center in the City of Riverside.
