BLOUNTVILLE, TN (WJHL) -
A manhunt sent a Sullivan County community into high alert last night and now the suspect who caused all the commotion is behind bars.
The Sullivan County Sheriff's Office arrested 21-year-old Larry Allen Stumbo late last night. After he led them on a short foot chase across Highway 394.
A helicopter from the Virginia State Police illuminated the Blountville Bypass in Sullivan County.
Several law enforcement agencies were called in after witnesses reported that the suspect attempted to break into their home.
According to Sullivan County Sheriff Wayne Anderson the suspect was pursued by sheriff's deputies across the highway, where he ditched a pistol, and was soon apprehended.
Sheriff Anderson says Stumbo could also be connected to an alleged rape that happened in the same neighborhood early Friday morning.

"It happened in the same neighborhood so that makes him a strong person of interest. Because it happened in the same neighborhood we don't know it's the same guy. It could be a coincidence but at this point he is a person of interest," said Sullivan County Sheriff Wayne Anderson
