RALEIGH, N.C. — Two brothers have been charged in connection with a violent home invasion that occurred early Monday morning in Raleigh.
WRAL reports a man was shot and his wife sexually assaulted in the incident, which was reported around 3:15 a.m. in the 500 block of East Lane Street. The wife called 911 after she was able to escape to a neighbor’s home.
In the 911 call, the wife said she and her husband woke up to the men in their bedroom. “…they wanted money. We gave them everything we had, and we didn’t have enough,” she said in the call, according to WRAL.
The suspects, who were wearing masks at the time, reportedly shot her husband after she was able to run away.
A neighbor described the woman’s scream to WRAL as “blood-curdling.”
Both victims were taken to WakeMed, where the wife was treated and release.
The husband is expected to survive, but the extent of his injuries is not clear, WRAL reports.
A neighbor who saw the suspects flee the scene took down part of a license plate number before police pursued the suspects’ vehicle in a high-speed chase, WRAL reports.
The suspects, Jahaad Tariem Allah Marshall, 26, and Shabar Master Marshall, 16, were reportedly arrested after crashing during the chase at the intersection of Wilmington and Rush streets.
The older brother is charged with one count of first-degree burglary, two counts of first-degree kidnapping, one count of attempted murder, one count of attempted first-degree rape and one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
The younger brother is charged with one count of first-degree burglary, two counts of first-degree kidnapping, one count of attempted murder and one count of first-degree forcible sex offense.
The investigation is ongoing.
