— Two brothers face multiple charges, including first-degree burglary and attempted murder, in connection with an early-morning violent home invasion in Raleigh's Oakwood neighborhood in which a man was shot and his wife sexually assaulted.

Police found the man in his home in the 500 block of East Lane Street around 3:15 a.m. after receiving a 911 call from his wife who was able to escape to a neighbor's house for help.

"We woke up, and there were these men in our bedroom, and they wanted money. We gave them everything we had, and we didn't have enough," the wife said in the frantic call, released Monday evening.

She said the men were masked and were wearing black. At some point, she was able to get away.

"I ran out of the house screaming, and then I heard them shoot him," she said.

"We heard a blood-curdling scream and then pounding on our front door," neighbor Terry Iverson told WRAL News Monday. "She said someone had broken in and there were a couple of guys, and her husband had been shot."

Both victims were taken to WakeMed, where the wife was treated and later released. The extent of her husband's injuries and whether he was still at the hospital Monday evening were unclear. He is expected to survive.

Other neighbors reported hearing commotion outside their window and seeing someone leaving jumping from a window and running down a pathway behind the house.

Another neighbor reported an attempted break-in at his home, neighbors said, and was able to write down part of a license plate number. Lane Street home invasion Brothers charged in violent Raleigh home invasion

A short time later, police arrested Jahaad Tariem Allah Marshall, 26, and Shabar Master Marshall, 16, after a high-speed chase when they crashed their car at the intersection of Wilmington and Rush streets.

Shabar Marshall was 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.

His brother was 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.

Police are still investigating the case and ask that anyone with information that might help detectives to contact Raleigh Crime Stoppers at 919-834-4357 or go to the Crime Stoppers website.

    Are you kidding me?These posters live in NC? I might as well move to NJ. No one would wake me up in my bedroom and yes these vermin would be killed. What is wrong with you people? I understand many of you are Obama voters, but these comments are unbelievable.

    I wonder which of these bright young men came up with this plan? Guns have a place beside the bed in my home and you would of had to call the morgue had this been my house, not 911.

    Does anyone have more info on this horrific crime? Seems like several details are missing from the story:

    - Was this a completely random attack?
    - How did they get to the bedroom so quietly (was this planned)?
    - Did they come in armed or did they find a gun inside?
    - If they came in armed, how did the wife escape?
    - Why did they shoot after the wife left and not before?
    - How were police able to find the car so quickly, or were these two riding around looking for more violence?
    - Are there only two suspects?

    Any additional info would be appreciated. Is there a police report that is publicly available?

    Better to have a gun and never need it than to need one and not have it...

    Better to die fighting than to die begging...

    Firing in the dark at a darkly clad individual would generally not be an advisable shot.

    I would much rather have a gun and not use it or get to it, then not have one and wish I did...

    You guys KILL me with this "if he had a gun he could protect his wife" mumbo jumbo. They were robbed at 2 am in the morning and awaken by those guys. Do you think the guys would sit around and wait for you to get a gun? I am sure they would be like...ok get to your guns.

    Again nothings 100%. See below reference about JFK assassination! But many are on the night stand. And the odds of getting all the way thru the house unheard is unlikely!

    How simply foolish of a post. Stay unarmed. I've trained all of my life and don't have to wait for a police response time to happen. I'll respond instantly. I am the cop on the scene at my home. Feel free to wait on your tax paid security to arrive when they get one clear. Hope your wives and kids don't mind that wait.

    Keep dreaming. I am know it makes you feel safer.

    Like the guy down in Harnett earlier this week. And he had guns. Having a gun may make you feel protected, and safer, but thats all it does. You are not really any better protected.
    Mr. Middle of the Road

    Completely different situations. He knew his attacker. So probably didn't come in thru forced entry and he didn't expect him to attack him. I believe he was found in the yard? However you are correct. Guns are not 100% protection. Afterall JFK was killed with lots of protection. But I assure you a stranger comes in my home unwanted and I have about 3 seconds, things won't be pleasant for him/her.

    It could have ended much worse too. Like the guy down in Harnett earlier this week. And he had guns. Having a gun may make you feel protected, and safer, but thats all it does.
