Three people have been arrested on charges they forced their way into a neighbor’s home in the Sterling Pointe area on Wednesday, a day after a robbery at their home, according to the Greenville Police Department.

The Wednesday incident occurred about 12:30 p.m. at 3975 Sterling Pointe Drive, according to to a case report released on Friday. A woman, her boyfriend, her daughter and another juvenile forcibly entered the apartment, one of them with a gun.

The group confronted people inside the apartment, police spokeswoman Kristen Hunter said. Nothing was stolen and no one was injured, but one of the suspects slashed a tire on a car belonging to one of the victims. Two women, a man, a teenager and four juveniles were inside.

Hunter said it appears there was an altercation between the individuals, possibly in relation to a robbery that occurred at the home of the suspects on Tuesday.

The incident on Tuesday occurred about 9:40 p.m. at 3917 Sterling Pointe Drive. A woman, her teenage daughter and two juveniles were at home when three people with guns forcibly entered the apartment, threatened the residents and stole a pair of shoes.

Ashley Staton, 32, and her 16-year-old daughter, both of whom live at 3917 Sterling Point Drive, were arrested in the Wednesday incident, along with Angelo Haddock, 34, of 3975 Sterling Pointe Drive.

Each was charged with breaking or entering to terrorize. The daughter also was charged with damage to property. A 15-year-old juvenile also was released into the custody of a family member.

Hunter said the investigation is ongoing. No charges had been filed on Friday in the Tuesday robbery.

A third home invasion that occurred about 8 p.m. on Sunday at 3909 Sterling Pointe remains under investigation, Hunter said. Three people with guns entered the home and stole several items from a couple inside. It was unclear if the incident was related to the other two.
