READING, Pa. -

Two knife-wielding men stormed into a woman's home and raped her while her two children were nearby, police said.

Luis Camacho-Rivera and Christian Perdomo-Velez were jailed Wednesday on numerous charges, including rape and burglary, officials said.

The two men, both armed with knives, made their way inside a Reading home early on the morning of Fri., April 19 in search of money that was owed to them, according to court documents.

The woman became scared and tried to run upstairs to check on her two children, but both men followed her, police said.

While upstairs, the suspects threw the woman onto a bed, took off her clothes and raped her before they both left the home, according to court documents.

The woman, who suffered several cuts from the knives to her legs, arms and face, was able to identify the suspects through a photo lineup, police said.

Camacho-Rivera was committed to the Berks County Jail on $150,000 bail; Perdomo-Velez's bail was set at $100,000.
