MEMPHIS, Tenn. — An 18-year-old man was arrested after a home invasion Monday afternoon.
According to police the incident happened in the 3000 block of Knight Lane around 3:40 p.m. The victims told police they were inside one of the apartments when three armed individuals entered and ordered them to the ground.
