KANNAPOLIS — Two men are in custody after Kannapolis Police said two gunmen broke into a man’s home Friday night and assaulted him.
According to Kannapolis Police, the victim was asleep when two men dressed in black and wearing ski masks broke into his home in the 900 block of Airline Drive and began striking him.
The man was “severely beaten with numerous lacerations to his head,” the report said.
Police have not released the victim’s name.
Officers said the two robbers fled on foot. A cell phone was the only thing reported taken from the home.
Police stopped a 2004 Buick, driving without headlights, on Bishop Lane near Concord Lake Road.
An officer stopped the Buick and found evidence inside “connecting the two occupants to the crime,” the report said.
Juan Amaya Gonzales, 22, of Rogers Lake Road, and Jose Daniel Soto, 23, of Beaumont Avenue, were arrested.
They were each charged with felony robbery with a dangerous weapon, felony assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and felony first-degree burglary.
Gonzales and Soto remained in Cabarrus County jail today, each under $300,000 bonds.
