Two Charlottesville men are in custody, and a third is being sought, in connection with an armed home invasion in Waynesboro Monday night.

Arun Rashid Turay, 22, and Justice Ahmad Carr, 18, were arrested and face multiple charges, according to a press release from the Waynesboro Police Department.

The incident was reported shortly before 11 p.m. Monday. A 19-year-old male and an 18-year-old female were found at a residence in the 1100 block of Ohio Street with visible injuries to the head that required transport to Augusta Health.

There was one other person, a juvenile, at the home at the time of the incident, but he was unharmed, according to police.

Investigation revealed that three individuals had kicked in the front door and went immediately to a bedroom where the two victims were sleeping and demanded money or drugs. When the couple said they had none, one of the subjects brutally pistol whipped the two in their bed.

All three suspects were armed with handguns and two of them searched areas of the house, stealing various items including a purse, book bag and debit cards.

The suspects fled the scene prior to officer arrival, but two of them were located by assisting Augusta County units on Mulberry Street about 10 blocks from the home.

The two were detained and property stolen from the home along with clothing worn by the suspects were found to be with them, along with evidence of the assault.

These two suspects are currently in Middle River Regional Jail without bond, and the department’s investigation continues into the identity and whereabouts of the third perpetrator.
