2 men charged with sexual assault, armed robbery in home invasion

GARFIELD, N.J. (AP) — Officials say two northern New Jersey men have been arrested and charged with sexual assault and armed robbery during a home invasion.

The Bergen County prosecutor's office said Sunday 22 -year-old Xavier Epps and 21-year-old Tymell White, both of Jersey City, are charged with two counts of aggravated sexual assault, armed robbery and armed burglary among other charges.

Authorities say Garfield police received an emergency call after 12:30 a.m. Saturday. Police say three or four men forced their way into the residence using handguns and forced two women and a man to the floor.

Officials say Epps and White sexually assaulted one female victim at various times. They're charged with taking cash, cell phones and other electronic items.

It is unclear if Epps and White have attorneys.
