Several calls to police began reporting the attack at about 7:50 p.m. Thursday at the Anacapa View Beach Homes complex, in the 100 block of Seaspray Way. The first officers on the scene found three people suffering from serious wounds after an altercation involving an ax or hatchet-type of weapon, according to Port Hueneme police.
Police identified the suspect at Gregory Brewer, 31, of Port Hueneme. Brewer was taken into custody without incident and is being held on $3 million bail.
