CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Two teens are behind bars after police say they robbed a woman at gunpoint, raped her and then kidnapped her.

The incident took place around 11 p.m. Wednesday at a home on Dale Avenue in the Oakdale neighborhood of northwest Charlotte, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police.

The woman told police the men kicked in her front door and went through her home stealing items before sexually assaulting her.

“The suspects then forced the victim to drive to an ATM and withdraw funds from her account,” CMPD said in a statement.  “The victim was then transported back to her residence and the suspects fled with the victim’s vehicle.”

On Thursday police found the woman’s vehicle, which they say helped lead them to the alleged attackers.

Davius Boyd, 16, and Damario Coxton, 17, were both arrested.  Each have been charged with three counts of first-degree rape, three counts of first-degree sex offense, two counts of first-degree kidnapping, burglary, robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, auto larceny and larceny after breaking and entering.

"Were still trying to figure it out ourselves why they wanted to commit this act and what brought them to that residence," said Major Johnny Jennings of the Criminal Investigations Division.

The two teens are in the Mecklenburg County Jail under $300,000 bond apiece, they are scheduled to have their first appearance before a judge on Monday.
