Two brothers are now charged in a Carteret County home invasion.
Phillip Thackston, age 19, and Christian Thackston, age 23, were arrested.
Police say a 22-year-old Newport woman reported she and her 3-year-old child were sleeping in their mobile home off James Grady Road on January 23 when she was awakened by one of the suspects covering her month, holding a small bat against her face and demanding money.
Police say the pair stole the victim's blackberry cell phone and took off.
Both Thackston brothers are charged with robbery and burglary.
