LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Louisville Metro police have arrested one of three people wanted in connection with a burglary and assault on the people inside.

Melissa Lynn Lay, 31, was arrested early Aug. 16.

Her arrest report says Lay went to a home in the 1000 block of Sale Avenue the day before, entered the home illegally and verbally assaulted the one of the victims. A short time later, two others arrived and forced their way in. The report says Lay and the two others began to physically assault the victims. The assault left one man unconscious.

After her arrest on unrelated charges, Lay admitted to police that she was involved in the home invasion and assault.

Lay was booked at Louisville Metro Corrections on one count each of burglary and wanton endangerment. Online jail records also show Lay is being held on drug charges.

The other suspects in the case remain at large.
