A second man is accused of breaking into a northeast Raleigh house last month and robbing two people at gunpoint, police say.

Donovan Moenell Williams, 28, of Durham, is charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, second-degree kidnapping and other offenses, according to court documents. He was arrested Tuesday.

Raleigh police say Williams and Evan Robert Hambrick, 19, conspired with an unknown person to rob two people at the home.

Williams and Hambrick broke into a house March 28 and assaulted a male resident with a handgun and a knife, causing serious injury, according to arrest warrants. They are also accused of threatening to use a gun while stealing $4,700 in cash and other items.

A female resident was forced inside a closet and not allowed to leave, police spokeswoman Laura Hourigan previously told The News & Observer.

Williams is also charged with assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and breaking and/or entering, court records show.

His bail was $400,000, and he was set to go to court Wednesday afternoon, according to records.

Hambrick was arrested April 3 and is being held on $500,000 bail, court records show. Some records spelled his last name as Hamrick.
