Officers said the break-in was motivated by the suspects’ desire to get revenge on one of the victims who lived there over an alleged incident involving the victim and a female friend of the suspects.

The break-in occurred around 1 a.m. Saturday, when officers said six men entered the victims’ apartment through the unlocked front door and took the victims’ dog.

Officers said they eventually left without the dog when the victims went downstairs and forced the door closed on the men, who were near the doorway.

Neither the dog nor any of the victims inside the apartment were hurt.

The suspects then called one of the victims and challenged him to fight near Library Street, where police arrested the suspects, officers said.

Dylan Cole, 19; Caleb Quinn, 20; Tanner Bridges, 21; Brandon Stroud, 18; Casey Dyer, 20; and Taylor Larson, 19, have all been charged with felony breaking and entering with the intent to terrorize or injure.

All six are currently enrolled at ECU, according to the university.
