RICHLANDS, Va. -

The investigation into a woman who was found lying next to a Southwest Virginia road leads to charges.

Richlands Police charged 29-year-old Joshua Vandyke with aggravated malicious wounding and assault and battery.

Police say a woman was found lying next to the road on Roberts Street Tuesday night.  Police say the woman and Vandyke got into an argument in a home and, they believe, that led to an assault.  News 5 has learned the woman escaped from the home and out into the road.

Joshua Vandyke is being held in the Southwest Virginia Regional Jail in Tazewell, without bail.
