Woman wanted for questiong in home invasion is arrested

A woman wanted by police for questioning in a violent home invasion is now under arrest.

State police caught 21-year old Latasha Lynch over the weekend after a chase in Rowan County.

Police believe Lynch is the woman who knocked on the door of a Laurel County home last week, asking for help, before attacking the man inside.

Lynch faces an escape charge.

A man that was with her, Michael Townsend, also faces multiple charges.

Police say both Lynch and Townsend could also face theft charges after officers found several hundred dollars worth of stolen items in their possession.
