“On 12/27/2020 at around 5 a.m., Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office (SCSO) Deputies responded to the Hornbrook area for a report of an active home invasion robbery.
Suspects kicked the victim’s door open, bear maced the victim, and began kicking him while he was on the ground. The bear mace affected the suspects, which caused them to retreat outside briefly, allowing the victim to escape through a window and get to safety. The suspects re-entered the residence and started taking items. The suspects fled the scene in a white, late 90’s Ford pickup truck with a wood rack. The victim believed the suspects had firearms with them during the robbery. The victim was home alone when the robbery occurred.
The responding deputies located the suspect vehicle on Ager Road near York Road. With the assistance of the California Highway Patrol, SCSO Deputies were able to safely take the suspects into custody. The suspects were identified as Steven Charles Ferea, 47 of Castro Valley, and Corey Matthew Boatman, 31 of Stockton.
The deputies recovered a brand-new cell phone, a chainsaw, a generator, and several other items identified as stolen from the victim. No firearms were found inside the vehicle.
Boatman and Ferea were transported to the Siskiyou County Jail where they were booked for several felony and misdemeanor charges. The victim was transported to the hospital for exposure to bear mace and a possible broken arm. The victim is expected to make a full recovery.
This is an ongoing investigation. Anyone with information that might be helpful is encouraged to contact the Siskiyou County Sheriff’s Office. (530) 841-2900″
