Neighbor saves woman from three alleged hit men

MCCREARY COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT/WYMT) - It was early Thursday morning when Kentucky State Police got a call saying three men assaulted a woman in the Pine Knot community.

One of the Debbie Taylor’s neighbors decided to check on her that morning after noticing a strange car parked near her home on Richard Stephens Road.

The three men who allegedly assaulted Taylor tried to convince the neighbor that they were with the FBI.

But when they failed to show identification, the neighbor knew something was wrong.

When the neighbor refused to leave Taylor alone with the men, the three suspects took off.

But it wasn't long before police caught up with one of them.

Timothy Prater of Somerset was soon arrested and charged for a number of things, including criminal complicity to commit murder.

More arrests are expected to be made in the case.

Prater is also charged with first degree robbery, impersonating a police officer and unlawful imprisonment.
