MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Montgomery Police Department confirms that is has arrested a suspect wanted in connection with the assault and robbery of a woman whose home was broken into Tuesday.

The assault/robbery happened in the 7000 block of Taylor Crossing Drive and immediately sparked a large manhunt by Montgomery city and county law enforcement.

Tawaine McCullough, 30, of Montgomery is charged with one count each of attempted murder, first-degree robbery and first-degree burglary. He's believed to be one of two suspects wanted by the Montgomery County Sheriff's Department in connection with an attempted burglary that occurred earlier in the day.

McCollough will be placed in the Montgomery County Detention Facility under bonds totaling $300,000.

The U.S. Marshals Service Fugitive Task Force is credited with taking the man into custody Thursday in Wetumpka.

A preliminary investigation by Montgomery police detectives indicates the suspect entered the victim's residence and attacked her before stealing her vehicle and leaving the scene. The victim was taken to an area hospital for treatment of her injuries. She was later later released.  

Police could not immediately provide any additional information regarding McCullough or the second suspect they're still searching for.
