On March 4, 2013, sheriff's deputies responded to a reported home invasion robbery on Sulphur Mountain Road, outside of Santa Paula.  The male victim (and occupant of the home) was brutally beaten and tied up.  He lost consciousness and suffered multiple serious injuries including lacerations to his head and facial fractures.  After the suspects left the residence, the victim regained consciousness, freed himself and summoned help.  The victim was transported by ambulance to a local hospital where he remained in intensive care for several days.


The Sheriff's Gang Unit took up the investigation and quickly identified the suspects as Hallye Wright and Shavon Oboh of Los Angeles.  Oboh was determined to be a member of a criminal street gang.


Search warrants served at both suspects' homes in Los Angeles, located some of the victim's property.  Sheriff's Investigators recovered additional pieces of the victim's property at Los Angeles area pawnshops. 


At the time of the search warrants, two firearms were recovered; a shotgun and a loaded .357 caliber handgun which had been reported stolen previously in Los Angeles County.  A large amount of cash and narcotics were also found.


Both Wright and Oboh were arrested and booked at Ventura County Main Jail for conspiracy, robbery, kidnapping, and assault causing serious bodily injury.  Wright's bail was set at $250.000.00, while Oboh's bail was listed at $750,000.00.
