Skip to comments.3 teens charged after home invasion
Posted on 09/08/2014 4:27:02 AM PDT by SLB
A 28-year-old Elizabethtown woman was awakened Tuesday morning in her Warfield Street home when police say three teenagers broke in with the intention of stealing money.
The teens all boys between the ages of 14 and 16 are lodged in Lincoln Village Regional Juvenile Detention Center and charged with robbery, authorities said.
The woman was shot in the head by a paintball gun, according to Elizabethtown police. The blow left a laceration that forced her to be taken to Hardin Memorial Hospital, where she was treated and released.
When police responded to the 100 block of Warfield Street at 3:12 a.m., they captured two boys running across a parking lot of a business on North Main Street. During questioning, police were told a third teen was involved in the incident and he was found and brought to department headquarters.
According to an EPD news release, the woman reported she was awakened and startled by the boys. The teens said they planned the home invasion with the goal of taking some easy cash, according to an EPD news release. Police said the woman called them to the scene.
The 14-year-old male was charged with first-degree robbery. The 15- and 16-year-olds were charged with first-degree complicity to robbery.
An investigation is ongoing.
should have also charged elder abuse
I realize the reporter is probably no smarter than my beagle but I note no charges listed for the use of the paintball gun. The wound needed medical treatment. Shouldn’t an assault charge have been lodged against one or all of these clowns?
Twenty eight years old is an elder???
First degree means they inflicted injury.
If she happens to be White, it would have been George Zimmerman and Ferguson over again. If she happened to be Black, probably no media reaction.
I would say that your Beagle is much smarter than the reporter.
We should have extremely strict military style rehab camps for teenage thugs, with incarceration lasting into their late 20s, past the worst of the hot-head years.
Perps were Amish no doubt?
"When she told the suspect she had no money, he tried to remove her clothes and a struggle ensued."
Have you ever owned a beagle? She’s a real cutie but no dumber dog ever lived. The pit bull she shares the house with seems to be always slyly making fun of her.
Speaking of reporters, we should have named her Katie Curic, cute but dumb, dumb, dumb.
Thanks for pointing that out, my error in reading.
State is KY
How long before the word “teens” is going to be called “a racist term” by some leftist?
Does E-town have a large contingent of Amish?
Actually, on reading it again, since she was 28 and they were “teens”, she technically is their elder. :=) I doubt that any elder abuse laws apply though.
