RALEIGH, N.C. -
The ROC Fellowship Church held a community gathering on Wednesday night to support a couple who were victims of a violent home invasion last weekend.
Residents of the Historic Oakwood Community on E. Lane Street in Raleigh came together to pray for healing after two of their neighbors were attacked during a home invasion on Jan. 7th.
Two brothers were charged in the incident that occurred in the early morning hours of that day, at approximately 3:30am.
Jahaad Tariem Allah Marshall, 26, and Shabar Master Marshall, 16, were said to have broke into the couple's home, shot the man and attempted to rape the woman before getting into a car and speeding away from the scene.
The Marshalls were arrested shortly after, after leading officers on a short vehicle chase until they crashed and attempted to escape on foot.
They were 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, one count of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and one count of first degree forcible sex offense.
The male victim is currently at Wake Med being treated for his injuries. The female victim is no longer in the hospital.
