Police say 42-year-old Latoya Lyerly had a visitation with her daughter at a homeless shelter in McKeesport on Sunday. A family member dropped the girl off at the shelter in the morning, with the understanding the girl had to be returned by 2 p.m.

The family member said that Lyerly did not return to the child until 8 p.m. At that point, according to the criminal complaint, Lyerly asked the family member if she could stay with her, but the family member said, “No.”

However, the family member did agree to drive her to North Homewood Avenue. The complaint says when they were stopped at an intersection, Lyerly grabbed her daughter and started running down Monticello Street.

Eventually, a police officer stopped Lyerly at the intersection of Frankstown Avenue and Sterrett Street. At that point, police say Lyerly was yelling at her daughte to “run.” Her daughter started running, but was caught a short time later by officers.

The 5 year old girl was not harmed. She was returned to her foster family around 2:00 this morning.

Latoya Lyerly is in the Allegheny County Jail facing charges of interference with custody of children and endangering the welfare of children.
