Hopkinsville Police are investigating a home invasion on North Kentucky Avenue from last night.
Like other recent burglaries and robberies, three suspects armed with handguns reportedly committed the offense, this time at 115 North Kentucky.
46-year old Faitema Hopkins of that address told police a Hispanic male knocked on her door around 10:45 and that he forced his way inside when she opened it. Two other suspects came in behind him with pistols demanding money.
Two of the suspects pointed their guns at Ms. Hopkins while the third suspect took her money out of her bedroom, with two other women at the home also held at gunpoint.
The three suspects got away, with the Special Investigation Unit of the Hopkinsville Police Department looking into this and other recent incidents.
One person had to be hospitalized following a rear-end collision on McLean Avenue yesterday afternoon.

19-year old Corshica Oatts was approaching from behind and said she didn’t see Pulley stopped and rear-ended her vehicle. Ms. Oatts got out of her vehicle before putting it in park and it rolled backwards into a tree line at the bottom of the hill across from Belmont Elementary School.
Both drivers were injured, but the report says only Ms. Pulley was taken to Jennie Stuart Medical Center.
