— Fayetteville police arrested a woman on conspiracy charges Wednesday in connection to a botched home invasion last week.

Barbara Ann Bunnell, 26, of 2597 Pinecrest Drive, faces a charge of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Police said two women were outside 299 Decatur Drive on Aug. 1 when a man forced them inside the home at gunpoint.

Mikey Deshannon Campbell, 36, came out of a bedroom with a shotgun and fired twice, hitting the attacker in the side, said Dan Grubb of the Fayetteville Police Department.

The suspect, Armon Leroi Mattox, 27, of 1508 Palmer Drive, was wounded and taken to a hospital. No charges have been filed against him yet. An accomplice, Kendall Leon Wortham, 27, of 238 Partners Way, was charged with possession of cocaine during the incident.

Police did not say how or if Bunnell knew the two men.

    In this situation, the homeowners should have just called the coroner. Thats how you deal with these thugs. They dont understand logic and reason. Only violence.

    I have a few friends that are just itching for someone to attempt a home invasion at their residence. Would absolutely "make their day".

    Wasn't that Mattox guy involved in something a few weeks ago? I remember that messed up eyebrow from another mug shot.

    Please proof read this article. Were the women arrested? They sound like kidnap victims. Is it me or does this article make no sense?
