A Radcliff teen was served a warrant Friday night as an inmate at the Hardin County Detention Center for his role in a recent home invasion robbery on Hillcrest Drive in Radcliff.

Maurice Walters, 18, who was arrested earlier Friday on a charge of first-degree criminal mischief, now has been charged with first-degree robbery.

More arrests are pending as an investigation into Sunday's reported incident continues, Radcliff Police Department Chief Jeff Cross said.

According to an arrest citation, Walters and two accomplices planned to enter the Hillcrest Drive home after a female had set up a meeting with a man who lives at the home. 

Shortly after the woman was in the home, Cross said, others entered.

The citation states Walters forced his way through the front door and he and the accomplices held the residents at gunpoint and demanded money.

Walters became engaged in a physical altercation with one of the residents and that individual "broke a couple of fingers'' during the fight, according to the arrest citation. During the altercation, Walters' pants ripped allowing his wallet to fall out of them in the front yard of the home as he fled with his identification in the wallet.

During an interview, Walters reportedly admitted to the robbery, according to the citation.

The criminal mischief charge is unrelated to the first-degree robbery charge, Cross said.
