Two Clinton teenagers and a Jackson woman have been charged with aggravated burglary after a Shetterly Lane homeowner reported that she had been hit in the arm with a baseball bat during an alleged burglary in Anderson County on Wednesday, authorities said.
A male homeowner said he had also been hit, and his Chevy Blazer was struck and dented, arrest warrants said.
Charged with aggravated burglary were Noah Ethan Ivey, who turned 18 the day before the alleged burglary and has addresses listed on East Drive in Clinton and Robertsville Road in Oak Ridge; Caleb Henry Ivey, 19, listed at the same addresses; and Heather Marie Kemp, 25, of Jackson, Tenn.
Noah Ethan Ivey and Kemp have also been charged with attempted aggravated robbery, aggravated assault, and vandalism.
In arrest warrants, Anderson County Sheriff’s Department Sgt. Mark Hobbs said the female homeowner was holding her arm when he responded on Wednesday, and it had large bumps and bruises.
“Her arm seemed visibly broken,” Hobbs said.
The male homeowner said he had been watching television with his children when he heard a car outside. He did not recognize the car or see anyone around it, and others in the house also did not recognize the car, the warrants said.
After they went back into the house, the female homeowner opened the back door, and two men and a woman allegedly “came rushing in the home,” the warrants said. The female homeowner was then allegedly struck in the arm with a baseball bat.
Hobbs said one resident of the home recognized the male, Ethan Ivey, as the man who struck her mother.
The trio fled in a silver car, the male homeowner said.
With the help of the Oak Ridge Police Department, the three were found at a Robertsville Road home. Oak Ridge police identified the vehicle and said the motor was still hot, the warrants said. Two males matching the descriptions of the suspects were in the house talking, Hobbs said.
Kemp was on a back porch talking when deputies arrived, the warrants said. She told Anderson County deputies she was not involved in the alleged burglary.
Noah Ivey said he did not want to talk, but Caleb Ivey gave a full statement, verbal and written, of what had occurred, Hobbs said.
The trio was taken to the Anderson County Detention Facility in Clinton, where all three remained jailed Friday evening. Noah Ivey’s bond has been set at $100,000, Kemp’s has been set at $50,000, and Caleb Ivey’s has been set at $25,000, according to jail records.
All three have court hearings scheduled next week.
Shetterly Lane is northeast of Oak Ridge off Black Oak Road between Laurel and Bush roads in Anderson County.
