Teens plead not guilty in near-fatal beating of Kenyan caretaker
Stacia Glenn, Staff Writer
Two teenagers charged with using a steam iron and wooden closet pole to severely beat their caretaker at a Yucaipa group home pleaded not guilty Wednesday morning.
Carlos Dubose, 17, of Oakland, and Davion Whitmore, 16, of Long Beach, were arraigned in San Bernardino Superior Court on charges of attempted murder, carjacking, second-degree robbery and evading an officer with willful disregard.
They also face a special allegation for inflicting great bodily harm, according to a criminal complaint. Both juveniles have been charged as adults.
Carlos and Davion are being held at San Bernardino Juvenile Hall and are scheduled to return to court Sept. 3 for a pre-preliminary hearing. A judge set their bail at $750,000.
Authorities said the teens attacked 43-year-old George Onyango late Saturday after one of them was denied a pass to leave the Aiming High Treatment Center on Fifth Place. The privately-owned group home is not a lockdown facility.
Sheriff’s deputies, who were called to the home by another probationer who lived there, found Onyango unconscious and bound in a bedroom closet. The teens allegedly stole money and clothing before escaping in the caretaker’s Honda.
A California Highway Patrol officer, who was unaware that the teens were wanted for attempted murder, tried to pull them over for a lane change violation. An 120 mph chase into Fontana commenced before Carlos and Davion exited the 10 Freeway at Sierra Avenue and crashed into a center median.
Onyango remains in critical condition on life support. He is suffering from severe brain damage and paralysis, officials said.
Since the teen probationers were being held in a private group home, the Probation Department does not have information on them.
Spokeswoman Susanne Pastuschek said Alameda County contacted them in July to advise that Carlos would be residing at the Yucaipa group home. Detectives say Davion is a documented Long Beach gang member.
