Two arrested in Dudley home invasion, sex assault

Posted March 15, 2013

— Wayne County deputies have arrested two men in connection with a home invasion in Dudley last week in which a woman was sexually assaulted, authorities said Friday.

Four or five men men forced their way into a home on Genoa Road at about 11 p.m. March 8, and one of the men forced a 21-year-old woman in the home into a bedroom, where she was sexually assaulted, authorities said.

Meanwhile, the other intruders went through the home, forcing another woman and a child to sit in the living room while they stole several items, including a gun, authorities said.

The women didn't know their attackers, authorities said.

Tavares Monderio Allen, 21, of 1802 John Court in Goldsboro, was arrested Thursday evening and charged with first-degree burglary, first-degree kidnapping, two counts of second-degree kidnapping, first-degree rape and larceny of a firearm.

Jay Mark Jackson Jr., 20, of 908A Hugh St. in Goldsboro, was arrested early Friday on the same charges.

Both men were being held in the Wayne County jail under $1.2 million bonds.

The case remains under investigation, and more arrests are possible, authorities said.

    When someone breaks into your home, they already come prepared with a loaded gun. You having one could cause you to loose your life. Be safe.

    " We need to make home invasion robbery a capital offense. The same with forcible rape."

    Did'nt know there was any other kind of rape

    The story says that the culprits stole a gun so what is this about the rape victim shooting the rapist?

    Often there is a weapon in the home, but the victim goes into a state of shock and becomes helpless, especially if the victim happens to be a female.

    I am aware that many females are tough as nails, but then there are a lot more that would freeze. By the way, men are known to freeze as well in combat.
