Northern Kentucky police are investigating a robbery that occurred during a drug deal inside a home in Kenton County, Ky.
The incident occurred at about 7:45 p.m. at home in the 3700 block of Steep Creek Road.
The man who placed the 911 originally told police that three men forced their way into his residence, stole his money and physically assaulted him. After the man was transported to St. Elizabeth Hospital in Edgewood, he confessed the robbery occurred when he tried to sell pain pills to the men he said robbed him, according to Kenton County police.
Police did not release the name of the man who was robbed, and say they don't know the identities of the three suspects.
No charges have been filed at this time.
The case is currently being investigated by the Kenton County Police Department.
