Police Arrest Home Invasion Suspect

More Video...

Lexington Police arrest a man they believe could be involved in as many as four attempted break-ins overnight.

Only 27 NEWSFIRST was there as police took Paul Lee Harris into custody on Red Mile Road.

Police responded to the first burglary report, just before five this morning on South Upper.

In that incident, a woman in the home got into a fight with the suspect, when he allegedly tried to steal her purse.

Police also think he tried to break into homes on Foreman Avenue and Unity Drive.

Police have charged Paul Lee Harris with criminal trespassing.

Harris could also face several burglary charges and even a robbery charge.

Lexington police say Thursday morning's burglaries are similar to some other unsolved crimes in Lexington. Police are investigating the possibility that Harris is responsible for several sexual assaults at Newtown Crossing Apartments and near the UK Campus.

    as the woman who woke up to paul crouched next to her bed, i am happy he is behind bars but, at the same time, wish him and his family all the best. it is sad when people you love get caught up in addiction and actions that you know to be out of their character.

    Well, all of the news channels will soon find that Paul was in jail during the time the UK rapist was committing his crimes. And because he had a paternity test this July, DNA is available to clear him of those accusations. He was wrong and we know that, but now 18, 36, 27 and Lexington Police are just trying to make a story bigger than what it really is.

    I am glad they caught him!!! Someone broke into my sons vehicle on Red Mile Rd last week and stole several items and broke out his back glass. Maybe these are connected considering this was his neighbors residence.
