— Two men are accused of forcing their way into the home of an elderly Goldsboro couple and robbing them on Thursday afternoon, police said.

Police said they received several calls just before 1 p.m. about a home invasion and armed robbery at a home on Central Heights Road.

Authorities arrested two suspects after a foot pursuit.

Travis Antonia Harris Jr., 19, and Alfonzo Mack, 18, both of 203 S. Leslie St., are each charged with two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and second-degree kidnapping. They also face one count each of assault inflicting serious bodily injury.

Both men were being held under a $500,000 bond in the Wayne County Detention Center on Thursday night.

The victims were assaulted during the robbery. They were treated and released from Wayne Memorial Hospital.

    Prison Population

    Approximately 46%, even though The U.S. population of African
    Americans is 13%
    THIS FIGURE IS MISLEADING AS THE MALE POPULATION OF AFRICAN AMERICANS OF JAIL AGE IS 2.16% OF THE US POPULATION(13/2 *0.33) ,SO 46% OF THE CRIMINALS COME FROM 3% OF THE POPULATION ,SHOCKER!

    I'm sure i dont have to point out the obvious in this article. It seems to be a never ending trend, I guess the way to put it without being mean is to just do like "rewster911" and call them animals. However, i'm sure everyone know's what it is being referenced to. never the less, i'm sure the NAACP will get involved, and will make it to where the ones that got robbed will end up being the "true" criminals in this case, and the 2 boys will get a slap on the wrist and let go, just in time to go rob someone else, while prob selling drugs, and never working and making a honest dollar. this country has gone to hell.

    18 and 19 year old young men; very capable of working a JOB! But instead choose to steal; and rob other people for what they have worked for.

    They will be our real soon robbing a home near you!

    Al, Jesse, and Barber can't get them out of this one. They'll try though.

    Citizens.....lock your doors and ARM YOURELVES. If you're found in my house at night, you will be found there by the Coroner in the morning, after my Corn Flakes!

    Thank God the bond is high. Keep them in jail until their sentence of at least 25 years. Just pathetic!!
