Hopkinsville Police made three arrests yesterday in connection with a home invasion from Monday.
Police first responded to a disturbance with guns involved at 205 Waddell Circle around 9:45 Monday night and were called back again after 20-year old Tiffany Wetenkamp said the original four suspects came back with more people and assaulted her.
Ms. Wetenkamp said the perpetrators dragged her out of the apartment and continued to assault her. The report says she had several bruises and scratches on her face, back, arms and legs.
Arrested at 301 Waddell Circle Apartment F yesterday were 21-year old Alexis Maruis Lowery, 29-year old Tiffany White and 25-year old Maurikus Leavell—all of Hopkinsville.
The arrest warrants say Lowery hit the victim over the head with a glass candle holder. Police believe the trio and a fourth suspect did the assault because they were angry the victim wasn’t arrested earlier in the evening on gun charges when officers were called the first time.
All three suspects are charged with first degree burglary and retaliating against a participant in a legal process.

The third vehicle—a 1997 Chevy Blazer valued at 15-hundred dollars—was driven away from Maplelawn and later located on Linda Court around 9:45 Friday night.
21-year old Dominick McKnight of Hopkinsville allegedly led officers on a foot chase, before being caught and arrested. He is charged with three counts of theft, receiving stolen property, running from police, possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
