Four Johnston County residents are under arrest and now face multiple charges after breaking into a Smithfield home and assaulting the police officer who apprehended them.

The incident happened late Thursday night. According to court documents, Dacarrus Staton, 28, Jesse Price, 27, and Afis Holt, 23, all of Selma, broke into the home located at 83 Hearth Lane in Smithfield and kidnapped the four people who were inside the home at the time in the process of committing an armed robbery and burglary.

Following the incident inside the home, Wilson's Mill police officer Ashley McLamb was called to the area and was assaulted and knocked unconscious by the three men.

Staton, Price and Holt all face charges of first-degree burglary, robbery with a dangerous weapon, four counts each of second-degree kidnapping, felony assault on a law enforcement officer inflicting serious injury and felony conspiracy. They are being held under a $450,000 bond.

A fourth person, Victoria Shaver, 36, of Smithfield, was also charged with felony conspiracy and is being held on a $30,000 bond.

They appeared in court Friday morning. Their next court date is April 25.

McLamb is now recovering, according to a spokesman for the sheriff's department.
