A man was arrested Sunday after trying to break into several homes and leading police on a bizarre foot chase through an Oxnard neighborhood Sunday morning.
Around 9 a.m., a homeowner reported a man trying to break into a home in the 2100 block of San Mateo Place. When officers arrived, they say Enrique Guzman Magallon ran from them and tried to break into another home before picking up a flagpole and swinging at police.
He fled through several other backyards and then tried to carjack a parked car that was running by striking the driver with a bladed tool and trying to drive away.

He drove into another parked car, got out and started throwing rocks at police officers, according to a written statement.
Twice officers tried to use a stun gun to subdue him, but it had no effect.
He was finally taking into custody after also charging officers with a large pipe.
He was arrested for four felony counts of assault on a peace officer, assault with a deadly weapon and carjacking.
