Deputies: Home invaders dressed as cops, shocked 4-month-old with stun gun
CLINTON, NC (WTVD) — The Sampson County Sheriff’s Office has charged two men with dressing as police officers during a home invasion robbery and using a stun gun on children – including a 4-month-old.
Investigators said it happened Tuesday just after 5 p.m. The Sampson County 911 center got a call about a breaking and entering in progress in the 68-hundred block of Hobbton Highway in Clinton.
Deputies arriving on scene saw two men wearing dark clothing and vests with “SWAT” printed on them. The men ran when they saw the officers arriving.
One suspect, Naquan Lavert Bryant (left), 20, of Raleigh, was captured a short distance from the residence armed with a stun gun and a pellet gun.
A second suspect, Rashad Eugene Curlee (right), 26, also of Raleigh, was captured in a wooded area behind the home.
Deputies say Bryant and Curlee – along with an unidentified third suspect – forced their way into the home that had two adults and five children inside.
One of the children, an 11-year-old, hid in a closet and called for help, but was soon discovered by one of the suspects who pointed a gun at her and threatened to kill her. During the robbery, the suspects shocked some of the victims, including a 4-month-old infant, with a stun gun. The infant was shocked in the face. Four of the victims were treated and released for stun gun burn marks on the scene by Sampson County EMS.
