LORAIN, Ohio — Three people were arrested in Lorain in connection to a home invasion that occurred on early Thursday morning.

The suspects, Michael Isom, 31, Dajon Dean, 25, and Clayton West, 23, were taken to the Lorain County Jail following their arrests.

According to county jail records, Isom is charged with having weapons under disability and aggravated burglary, while Dean and West have been charged with complicity. Dean is also facing an additional charge of having weapons under disability.

On Thursday at around 12:31 a.m., officers responded to the 2300 block of East 37th Street for a burglary in progress call that turned out to be a home invasion.

Police said that a suspect, later identified as Isom, broke into the home, confronted the homeowner with a gun and ordered the resident to turn over valuables.

Officers arrived at the scene shortly thereafter. Isom ran away, but in the process he dropped his gun and cell phone. Police said that they traced the gun and discovered that it was reported stolen from a home on West 14th Street.

Police detectives were able to track down Isom later that day. According to authorities, Isom was uncooperative with police during the arrest and a K-9 was used to bring him under control.

After being taken into custody, Isom received medical care for a dog bite at a nearby hospital and then was taken to jail.

Upon further investigation, police also arrested West and Dean for their alleged roles in the home invasion. Police said Dean is also considered a person of interest in a series of burglaries that occurred in Lorain and neighboring cities.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the Lorain police detective bureau at 440-204-2105.
