LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Louisville Metro Police say there are still suspects on the loose following a Friday morning home invasion in the Hayfield Dundee neighborhood. 

According to LMPD, around 5 a.m. in the 3000 block of Rexford Way, police responded to a report of a home invasion. 

Officers with LMPD's Fifth Division were able to detain one person at the scene who was allegedly involved in the home invasion. 

Police say 31-year-old Larance Harper was arrested and charged with burglary, robbery, fleeing or evading police, and receiving stolen property $10,000 or more.

Despite, Harper's arrest, police believe there are several other suspects out there who police couldn't arrest because they fled.

According to Harper's arrest citation, when police arrived at the home, officers saw several individuals with flashlights inside the home. Soon after, several people ran out of the home's garage.

Police gave gave "loud, verbal commands to stop," but the subjects continued to run. Harper allegedly hopped over a fence before finally surrendering to officers.

The homeowner later told police he was assaulted at gunpoint by possibly 5-6 people. He said the suspects stole his guns from a gun safe.

"Detectives are canvassing and actively working in that area," an LMPD spokesperson said Friday morning.

If residents in the neighborhood have any video footage or if anyone has any information regarding the home invasion, police urge that you call LMPD's anonymous crime tip line at 502-574-LMPD (5673).
