LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - One person is arrested, but two others are being sought after a home invasion on Fifth Avenue Tuesday night.

Lake Charles police say three males forced their way into an apartment at Fairview Crossing Apartment complex, in the 4200 block of Fifth Avenue, and held the people in the home at gunpoint.

The suspects then fled with money and the victims' cell phones, according to Lt. Kevin Kirkum, with the Lake Charles Police Department.

One suspect, James Jamal Walker, 17, was arrested in the 2100 block of Fifth Avenue. He was booked on one count of home invasion. Bond is set at $12,000.

Kirkum asked anyone with information about the case or the other two suspects to call Sgt. Jeff Keenum at 337-491-1311.
