The pair tried to break into an occupied room at a Motel 6 on West International Speedway Boulevard early Saturday morning, according to deputies. The pair were trying to enter the room through a window and woke up the occupant who responded by firing a gun at them, hitting Charapta in the backside, records show.

Deputies said the pair took off toward the Tomoka Farms Road area. Detectives released surveillance pictures Saturday that they say show the suspects.
