Authorities in Minnesota are searching for two men who allegedly brutalized a mother and her teenage daughter four months ago, raping and beating them both while demanding cash.

Reggie D.P. Bishop and Roynell Taylor, who are both 31 and live in Minneapolis, have been charged with criminal sexual conduct as well as various burglary counts in connection with the July home invasion in Minneapolis. They remain at large.

They allegedly entered the residence at around 11 p.m., armed and wearing masks, according to criminal complaints obtained by PEOPLE. They were standing in the house’s kitchen when the 14-year-old victim shuffled in, on her way to get a late night snack.

The complaints allege they grabbed the girl by the throat and asked who else was in the house. She told them that her mother was sleeping upstairs. The men then bound the victims and shoved pillowcases over their heads.

The men then “demanded to know where the money was in the house,” according to the complaints. When the two victims told the men they didn’t know, the suspects allegedly threatened to burn them with an iron and kill them.

After ransacking the home, the complaints state the suspects brought the teen upstairs, where she was sexually assaulted. Authorities allege the men told the “crying and screaming” girl that “it will all stop if you tell [us] where the money is,” according to the complaints.

The mother was then brought into another room, where police say she, too, was sexually assaulted. The complaint further alleges she was forced to perform oral sex on one of the suspects as he reportedly held a gun to her head.

The mother was also punched in the eye and hit over the head, possibly with the butt of a gun, according to the complaints. The men continued to demand money throughout the 90-minute ordeal.

Eventually, the men left with an assortment of electronics and the mother was able to call 911. Her husband came home shortly after she dialed police, and officers found all three in one of the house’s bathrooms.

A third man is also suspected in the home invasion, but he has not yet been charged and is currently in prison on an unrelated weapons conviction.
