Arrest made in Friday home invasion, additional suspect still at large

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Montgomery Police have arrested a man on five charges following a Friday home invasion robbery that sent two people to a local hospital.

Authorities were called to a residence in the 6000 of Monticello Drive around 9:30 a.m. Friday, September 14. MPD detectives initiated a robbery investigation after three occupants of the home advised that two black males had forcibly entered the residence armed with a handgun and robbed them of assorted currency and jewelry. Two of those three occupants received injuries during the offense and were transported to a local hospital for treatment.

Alabama State Representative Jay Love confirmed that his mother-in-law, Louise Walker, was one of the two people injured during the robbery. Love said that Walker was struck in the head with a pistol and suffered severe lacerations to her head and face. As a result, she also had several broken bones in her face.

One man was arrested shortly after the robbery on Friday morning. That man was 31-year-old Elton Walton. Walton was taken into custody after authorities performed a traffic stop on a vehicle matching the description of a vehicle believed to have been used by the robbery suspects.

Walton has been charged with three counts of first-degree robbery, one count of first-degree burglary and one count of first-degree assault. He is being held at the Montgomery County Detention Facility on $300,000 bond.

The second suspect wanted in connection with this crime is still at large. Authorities say they are actively pursuing this person.

The Montgomery Police Department's initial investigation indicates that this robbery was not a random offense. No additional information is available for release at this time due to the nature of the ongoing investigation.
