Two people allegedly involved in a home invasion and assault Monday night at a Peytontown Road Road residence have been charged with several felonies.
The Madison County Sheriff’s Office reported Tuesday that three people were injured during an altercation at the home located in the rural area between Berea and Paint Lick.
Resident Danny Ashcraft was stabbed several times.
Jason Keith Blair, 37, has been charged with first-degree burglary and second-degree assault in the incident. He was lodged in the Fayette County jail on unrelated charges after he was treated at the University of Kentucky Medical Center.
Pamela G. Horne, 34, of Mount Vernon, also was arrested on charges of facilitation to first-degree burglary, theft by unlawful taking (auto) and falsely reporting a crime.
According to an arrest warrant sworn out by a sheriff’s deputy, Horne took the keys to Ashcraft’s truck and drove away in the vehicle during the fight between Ashcraft and Blair.
She then returned to the house to assist Blair in fleeing from the scene, the deputy said.
Horne wrecked the truck less than a mile from Ashcraft’s home, according to a news release from the MSO.
Horne and Ashcraft were treated at Saint Joseph Berea hospital and released that night.
Horne was interviewed after the altercation, and the deputy said she initially told him she’d been sexually assaulted by Blair. However, Horne later retracted her statement and said he had not attacked her, the deputy said.
The false allegation led to Horne’s misdemeanor charge of falsely reporting a crime.
