Brothers Charged in Violent Raleigh Home Invasion

WRAL, January 8, 2013

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.


“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.”

{snip} The extent of her husband’s injuries and whether he was still at the hospital Monday evening were unclear. He is expected to survive.


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.
