— Three men and a woman were charged Friday morning after authorities say they robbed a home in Wilson's Mills and assaulted a police officer who attempted to apprehend them.

The assault happened about 9:45 p.m. at 83 Hearth Lane, shortly after police officer Ashley McLamb responded to a call about a man with a gun. After arriving at the home, McLamb discovered that a robbery had taken place.

As he tried to apprehend the men, McLamb was assaulted. He was taken to WakeMed, and the sheriff's office said his injuries did not appear to life-threatening. 

Jesse Price, Dacarrus Staton and Afis Holt face multiple felony charges, including first-degree burglary, robbery with a dangerous weapon, four counts each of second-degree kidnapping, felony assault on a law enforcement official inflicting serious injury and felony conspiracy.

They each received a $450,000 bond. The woman, Victoria Shaver, was charged with felony conspiracy and received a $30,000 bond. Authorities said she was driving a car to assist in the robbery.

All four were being held in the Johnston County jail Friday morning and made their first court appearances Friday. They were given court-appointed attorneys, and hearings were scheduled for April 25 .

No other information was released.
