Two men have been arrested in connection with a home invasion that happened on Sept. 28 near Loris, according to Horry County police.

Taereek Hemingway and Dominique Hemingway have both been arrested and are currently being detained at the Columbus County Detention Center in North Carolina awaiting extradition to Horry County, according to Horry County police spokeswoman Krystal Dotson.

Dominique Hemingway will be charged with armed robbery and kidnapping, according to Dotson.

Tareek Hemingway will be charged with armed robbery, kidnapping, pointing and presenting a firearm, possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime, and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, Dotson said.

The charges against the two come after a 49-year-old woman told police she was robbed at gunpoint in her home off Highway 701 North in the Loris area of Horry County.

She told police that she had just gotten home from collecting rent when she thought she saw a shadow outside of her home near the car port. She went around to another door and saw a man trying to get into her home.

The woman said she tried to push the man out of her home when another man forced his way into the home, according to the report.

One of the men put a gun to her head and demanded money, so she gave them the $360 she had just collected in rent, the report stated.

The men then reportedly asked her where her food was and if she had a husband. The report says the woman responded that she had a husband and he would be back soon and "to take what ever they wanted as long as they did not hurt her."

"One of the males then slapped her on her buttocks and told her to tell her husband he had a nice wife and they would be watching her," and then left the home, according to the police report.
