Holmes Co. authorities search for men wanted in home invasion that left elderly woman injured

PICKENS, MS (WLBT) - The search is underway in Holmes County for men wanted in connection with a home invasion that reportedly left one elderly woman injured.

Residents in the area are in disbelief as law enforcement tracks the suspects.

On Monday, Pickens police were at a home in the 300 block of Shanis Avenue, investigating a possible home invasion. An elderly woman, Ethel Kimbrough, was reportedly assaulted. The extent of her injuries is not known, but she is not in the hospital.

A man who answered the door at the residence declined to comment.

Davis said law enforcement officers are searching for three men.

Felesia Edwards has lived in the neighborhood for 12 years and is surprised something like this happened in what she calls a “quiet community.”

Holmes County Sheriff Willie March reports that deputies Pickens and Durant police arrested Ronnie Madison, Jr. of Goodman Tuesday morning in connection with the crime.
