Lake Placid, Florida -- Three men have been charged in connection with a home invasion robbery dating back to October.

Adarius Hollinger and Antonio Jefferson of Sebring, both 20-years-old, along with 18-year-old Christopher Kenon of Avon Park are charged with armed robbery, armed burglary, and kidnapping.

Deputies say back on Oct. 23, the three men attacked a homeowner on Tahiti Lane in Lake Placid who was preparing to leave his home. Deputies say two of the suspects restrained the victim, removed jewelry he was wearing and took him to the back of the house while the third man went inside stealing other valuables including televisions from the home. Detectives believe all three men fled in the victim's truck leaving him tied up inside the house.

The victim was eventually able to free himself and called 911. After a lengthy investigation, deputies were finally able to arrest Hollinger and Jefferson. Kenon was already in custody in connection with the robbery of a Pizza Hut restaurant in Sebring.
