Lexington Co. man arrested in connection with home invasion attack

LEXINGTON COUNTY, S.C. (WIS) - Deputies have arrested 19-year-old Colbie Whitaker in connection with an attack that happened in a Lexington County home last week.

Officials with the Lexington County Sheriff’s Department said Whitaker was part of a group that broke into a home on Treemount Lane on Jan. 21 armed with a baseball bat and a machete.

“The group attacked three people inside the home. Whitaker held one of them at gunpoint,” said Lexington County Sheriff Jay Koon.

Investigators believe this was not a random crime and are continuing to search for the remaining members of the group involved in this incident.

Currently, Whitaker is being held in the Lexington County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
