School Employee Seriously Injured In Incident At Ventura County High School; Student Arrested

A teenager is facing an assault with a deadly weapon charge after witnesses say he intentionally drove a vehicle into a school official at a Ventura County school campus, and fled the scene.

It happened just after eight Friday night, at Thousand Oaks High School.

Ventura County Sheriff’s Office officials say the school official was apparently trying to prevent the teen from driving off after a theft of a candy bar from a snack bar in the school’s gym.

Lisa Solis was hit, and seriously injured. The 50 year old woman is an Activities Assistant for Thousand Oaks High School. The 16 year old boy was later arrested near his home in Thousand Oaks.
