Two North Augusta teens are facing charges for allegedly breaking into a home and threatening to shoot a victim before assaulting him. 

Gabriel Lee Brown, 17, and Sherman Hope Lane Beam, 18, of North Augusta were both charged with first-degree burglary and first-degree assault and battery, according to jail records. 

Beam was also charged with malicious injury to animals or personal property injury valued at $2,000 or less. 

Deputies spoke with a victim about a burglary and assault that occurred on Duncan Road the afternoon of Feb. 10, according to an incident report by the Aiken County Sheriff's Office. 

The victim said he had been asleep alone at his brother's house when he woke up and saw four suspects, allegedly including Brown and Beam, enter the home through a window, the report states

The victim told deputies one of the suspects pulled out a gun and put it on his head. 

Another suspect removed his belt and began beating the victim with it, the report states. 

The victim reported the suspects also vandalized the home while the assault took place. 

The suspects left in an unknown vehicle, and the victim walked to his mother's house to call law enforcement. 

Brown and Beam were charged Wednesday and were taken to the Aiken County detention center where they were being held as of Friday.
