Virginia Beach, Va. - Three men have now been arrested in connection to a home invasion that occurred in Virginia Beach.

Police have arrested  Patrick Shardell Turner, Jr. who has been charged with robbery and larceny of property over $200 with an intent to sell.

They've also arrested Devon Parenti Langley. He has been charged with abduction, use of a firearm, attempt to commit non capital burglary, wearing a mask in public and conspiracy to commit a felony.

On Monday, police announced yet another man who has been charged in this case. The third suspect has been identified as 21-year-old Tajhai Jones. He is facing charges including attempted robbery, abduction, armed burglary, conspiracy, use of a firearm in the commission of a felony, and wearing a mask in public.

This happened in the 200 block of Cassady Avenue.

At approximately 12:48 p.m. officers were dispatched to a report of a home invasion robbery and learned that two masked individuals had entered the home armed with handguns.

Once inside they made demands of the occupants. When their demands were not met the suspects fled the scene. It is unknown if they ran away or left in a vehicle.

A Virginia Beach mother who wishes to remain anonymous tells NewsChannel 3 that her 18-year-old son lives in the home with other renters. He was there on Tuesday with his friends, and she believes they were targeted.

"My son and his friends knew who they were, from their voice, their body frame and mannerisms," she says. "They know that he's got nice phones, he was working, he saved his money."

There were no reported injuries reported.

Both men are now being held in the Virginia Beach Correctional Center without bond.
