The suspects took an undisclosed amount of cash from the victim. The victim received a laceration on his right shoulder and multiple cuts around his face/ head area during the altercation.

During the investigation at the hospital, detectives developed suspect information. The suspects were identified as Joaquin Edgordo Mena Jr, 20, and Axel Joel Camargo, 27, both of Mocksville.


Detectives obtained warrants and they were arrested  on Oct. 24, each charged with first-degree burglary, robbery with a dangerous weapon, larceny from person and assault inflicting serious injury. They were taken into custody in lieu of $5,000 bonds and are scheduled to appear in Davie District Court on Nov. 17.
