Four teens arrested in Lee County home invasion

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -     Three of the people arrested in a violent Lee County home invasion we told you about last night are sisters.

 We got new information about the violent burglary today from sheriff's Investigators.

19 year old Kaleah Peek, 18 year old Kayla Taylor, their younger sister, and 18 year old Anthony Hood were arrested for the burglary and attack.

 Lee County Investigators say late Friday night the four pushed their way into the home Shawnee Avenue and attacked the 7 people inside.

Tonya Stewart was hit in the face with a bicycle pedal.  

Sheriff Reggie Rachals says the motive was a domestic dispute.  

Taylor and victim Kandie Timbes both have children fathered by the same man.

Sheriff Reggie Rachals said "The forcible felony going into the house. Causing the damage that they caused.  Injuries that it's caused, to the family.  Not just physically but mentally also, being broken into like that."


The three teens charged as adults are still being held in the Lee County jail.  

 The juvenile was released to the custody of her guardian.
