VICKSBURG, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

20-year-old Jacorey Thomas and 27-year-old Mark Carver, Jr. have been arrested and charged in a home invasion that took place in Vicksburg over the weekend.

A 72-year-old woman reportedly rushed to a neighbor's house asking for help after the two men forced their way into her home and raped her at gunpoint.

The neighbor then called 911 and reported the incident. The police arrived at around 6:30 am to the home on Mundy Street. 

The woman told police that she was awakened by the door being forced open.

In addition to being sexually assaulted, her home was ransacked and an undetermined amount of cash was taken.

Thomas is charged with sexual battery, rape, armed robbery, home invasion and kidnapping. Carver is charged with home invasion, armed robbery and credit card fraud.
