Two teens have been charged with breaking into a woman’s northwest Charlotte home earlier this week, raping her, and then forcing her to withdraw money from an ATM. The attackers then stole the woman’s car, police say.
The victim’s 2-year-old child was in the house but not harmed, according to authorities.
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police said Friday that 16-year-old Davius Boyd and 17-year-old Demario Coxton face numerous charges in connection with the alleged attack, which happened about 11 p.m. Wednesday on Dale Avenue. That is in a northwest Charlotte neighborhood off Oakdale Road, north of Peachtree Road.
According to police, the woman told them two men armed with guns kicked in the front door, then went through the house looking for valuables. The men also sexually assaulted the woman, she told police.
Then, the woman said, the two attackers forced her to drive to an ATM and withdraw money from her account.
The woman said the men took her back home and dropped her off. They then stole her car, she said.
Detectives say they received information Thursday that helped them find the woman’s car and two suspects. Boyd and Coxton were arrested without incident, police say.
Each of the men has been charged with a number of crimes, including:
• Three counts of first-degree rape.
• Three counts of first-degree sex offense.
• Two counts of first-degree kidnapping.
• Robbery with a dangerous weapon.
• Conspiracy to commit armed robbery.
• Auto theft.
• Larceny after breaking and entering.
They are jailed with a court date set for Dec. 4.
