MYRTLE BEACH — Police have apprehended two suspects in connection with a break-in, assault and robbery on 6th Ave. North.
Jerome Humphreys Bell, 39, of Myrtle Beach and Nazdric Jamison Gates, 28, of Mount Airy, N.C., both are charged with robbery/robbery while allegedly armed, first degree burglary, first degree assault and kidnapping.
The charges stem from an incident Sunday at the home on 6th Ave N., where two victims – a male and a female – said that three males entered their bedroom while they were sleeping. The victims told police the suspects got on top of the male victim and began punching and kicking him.
The suspects allegedly took two cellphones, medication and about $30 from the victims.
