Three men have been arrested in connection with a home invasion on University Avenue Wednesday evening. 

Hunter Reynolds, 18, Jartavious Merritt, 21, and Reginald Kimball, 20, were spotted by UK police and brought in for questioning. Lexington police charged the men after their interviews, Lexington police spokeswoman Brenna Angel said. 

Around 9 p.m. on Wednesday, a UK student answered a knock on their apartment door. Three suspects then forced their way into the apartment near the 200 block of University Avenue. One of the robbers had a handgun. The robbers got away with a backpack and cash. 

Reynolds, Merritt and Kimball are charged with first-degree robbery. Both Merritt and Kimball were charged with possession of marijuana. Merritt was also charged with possession of drug paraphernalia. 

The men were lodged in the Fayette County Jail.
