Ramon and Cortez, both of 2905-818 Red Clay Drive in Raleigh, are charged with attempted murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon, first-degree kidnapping and larceny of a motor vehicle.
Warrants state that the men took $200 cash, a cellphone and black leather jacket from Merida before stabbing him and taking his car.
They were both being held Saturday at the Wake County jail under $250,000 bonds.
