UNION, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Union police said that three people were arrested in connection with a late-night break-in, assault and burglary that happened on Hill Street.

According to the police report, the victim was awakened at 1:30 a.m. Tuesday to find an ex-girlfriend, her son and another man knocking at his front door, who then forced themselves into the house. The woman, identified as 38-year-old Natasha Arnold, claimed the victim was the father of her son from a relationship with him 20 years ago, police said.

When the victim denied the paternity of the child, Arnold began hitting the victim with a curtain rod and a hammer, according to the police report.

Arnold's son, 20-year-old Secrea Arnold, was present during the confrontation along with the other suspect, 19-year-old Chevez Turner, police said. According to the report, her son refused a DNA test while the victim agreed to it.

The victim was beaten in the bathroom of his house and was forced to clean up his blood, according to the report. Police said he was held for about five hours and then robbed of his wallet and phone.

According to the jail's website, Natasha Arnold, Secrea Arnold and Chevez Turner were all charged with kidnapping, first-degree burglary, and armed robbery with a deadly weapon, and assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature.
