The Alexandria Police Department has arrested three people and is looking for another in connection with a break-in on Moody Oaks Drive in the Tennyson Oaks neighborhood on Monday morning.

Police tell News Channel 5 that two men entered the home and attempted to tie up the resident. A struggle ensued, during which the resident was shot in the hand. The two suspects then fled on foot.

Police were able to identify two of the suspects who entered the house, as well as two others who were involved in the burglary. On Monday night, Autoria Lachney, 18, was arrested for her involvement. On Tuesday, police arrested Johnny Smith, 21, one of the two people police believe broke in. They also arrested David Bush, 20, for his involvement.

All three suspects have been charged with aggravated burglary, armed robbery and attempted first degree murder.

Police are looking for Roy Dewayne Hayes, Jr., 18, and plan to charge him with the same charges.

According to Rapides Parish Clerk of Court records, Hayes, Jr.'s last court appearance in Rapides Parish was in November 2017 when he received a series of convictions for similar charges.

In November 2014, Hayes was charged with three counts of simple burglary. In November 2017, he pleaded guilty as charged to those crimes. He was sentenced to 12 years at hard labor by Judge Mary Doggett. That sentence was suspended and he was given three years of supervised release. Hayes was represented by David Williams. The case was prosecuted by Tom Searcy.

In May 2015, Hayes was charged with contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile, two counts of armed robbery, and aggravated kidnapping. In November 2017, the Rapides Parish District Attorney's Office dismissed the contributing to the delinquency of a juvenile and aggravated kidnapping charges. Hayes pleaded guilty to the lesser offense of simple robbery for the armed robbery charges. He was sentenced to five years at hard labor by Judge Mary Doggett. That sentence was suspended and he was given three years of supervised release. Hayes was represented by David Williams. The case was prosecuted by W.T. Armitage.

In June 2015, Hayes was charged with carnal knowledge of a juvenile, a felony charge. In November 2017, he pleaded guilty to the lesser offense of carnal knowledge of a juvenile, a misdemeanor charge. He was sentenced to six months of supervised release by Judge Mary Doggett. Hayes was represented by David Williams. The case was prosecuted by W.T. Armitage.

Hayes is also facing a charge of introducing an electronic device into a correctional institution. In fact, he was supposed to have a pre-trial hearing on that matter on Wednesday. He obviously didn't show.
