SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) - Three suspects have been arrested in connection with a home invasion and second degree battery.

Sulphur Chief of Police Chris Abrahams says that late Tuesday evening, November 30, officers were dispatched to a residence in reference to a disturbance.

When they arrived, officers learned that a woman said her boyfriend had been beaten by three men, one of which was her husband who she had been separated from.

Officers were told that her husband, John Patrick McCoy, and two of his friends, Toby Ryan Cooper and David Michael Craig, forced their way into the residence and began beating the victim.

After obtaining their names and possible location, officers located them and questioned them concerning the incident.

The three were later arrested and booked into the Sulphur City Jail on charges of home invasion and second degree battery.

Cooper's bond was set at $200,000. Craig's and McCoy's bond was set at $300,000.

Reportedly, the victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment of his injuries. As of Wednesday afternoon, he was listed in "stable" condition.
