a gun call at a residence in the 2500 block of Eucalyptus Drive in Oxnard. Upon their arrival, deputies
contacted two adult victims and discovered they had been assaulted. During the incident, one of the
victims was injured when two suspects forced their way into the residence. The two suspects displayed
firearms and stole property from the victim.
While the suspects attempted to leave the location, a second victim exited an adjoining residence and

William Arthur and Thomas Hartley. Detectives also identified Crystal Cabral as the driver of the
suspects' get away vehicle. The three suspects were subsequently booked at the Main Jail for various
charges including robbery, assault with a deadly weapon and false imprisonment by violence.
