(SHELBY CO.) - Two suspects wanted for questioning for their involvement in an early morning home invasion and stabbing in West Baden Springs are now in custody after a vehicle pursuit on Interstate 65.

Around 5 p.m. Thursday evening, officers attempted to stop 20-year-old Tanner Stickney and 21-year-old Cody Lake on Interstate 65 north of Columbus.

The pursuit traveled north on I-65, exited at the 80 mile marker, and traveled then east on State Road 252.

The suspects stopped near Flat Rock along State Road 252 in Shelby County and were taken into custody without incident at 5:17 p.m.

A female in the vehicle was also arrested.

Earlier, Indiana State Police were looking for the two Lawrence County men and considered Stickney and Lake armed and dangerous.

The two were last seen traveling in a silver 2002 Pontiac with a printed sticker saying "Grand Prix" or "Grand Am" in the back window at the Bloomington Walmart.

According to police, the two men entered the home of Robert and Donna Meehan of West Baden Springs around 2:45 a.m. Thursday. The men, wearing hooded sweatshirts and masks, entered the home through a bathroom window on the north side of the home and confronted the couple, demanding money and medications.

After Robert refused to cooperate with the suspects, Robert suffered a stab wound to his arm and stomach. Donna suffered a stab wound to her neck. The suspects then fled the home.

The Meehanes were transported to Indiana University Health of Paoli and then taken to the University of Louisville Hospital in Louisville for treatment. Mr. Meehan is listed in stable condition, while Mrs. Meehan was released Thursday morning after treatment.
