A brazen daytime home invasion robbery in Berkeley County sent a man to the hospital on Tuesday.
At around 1:20 pm, Berkeley County Sheriff's Deputies responded to Shepherdstown Road and Shipper Court after receiving calls that a man was in the roadway flagging down people, saying he had just been robbed and the suspect fled in a black jeep.
A short time later, a deputy spotted the Jeep and followed it to East Race Street where two black males got out and started to walk towards the police cruiser. The suspects did not obey the deputy's commands, and after back-up officers arrived the men were taken into custody.
The suspects were identified as Roger Doleman, 27, and Raheim Doleman, 26, both from Martinsburg.
The Jeep was searched and police recovered stolen items and two firearms.
The victim was identified as Fulton Walker. A former NFL player for the Los Angeles Raiders and Miami Dolphins.
After the attack, he was taken to the Berkeley Medical Center Emergency Room for treatment of his injuries.
Walker told police that he was at his home when he heard a knock on the door. When he answered it, there were two black males on his porch. Walker said he was hit and knocked to the floor. When he tried to get up, both suspects started hitting him and he said one had a sawed-off shot gun. At that point, one suspect continued to hit Walker while the other ran inside and came out with several items.
Both men fled the home in the Jeep and Walker ran down the driveway and into the road.
Police say an item belonging to Walker matched an item recovered from the Jeep.
Both suspects have been charged with robbery, burglary, conspiracy to commit robbery, and assault during the commission of a felony.
