PIGEON, MI – A Huron County woman arrived home at about 6:15 a.m. this morning to find a man had broke into her apartment and found him to be interested in her laundry.
On Saturday February 22nd, 2020, the Huron County Sheriff’s Office responded to the apartment of a 29-year-old woman who had arrived back to her home in the 7200 block of Michigan Ave in Pigeon to find a man in her house.
She reported to the responding officers when she first arrived at her apartment she noticed her door to be ajar. Though concerned, she entered anyways. Once inside she noticed flickering light in her bedroom. She proceeded to her bedroom door where she found a male intruder standing over her laundry.
As soon as the male intruder realized she had came back, he tried to flee her apartment. During his attempted escape, the woman who was now angry on several levels, punched him in the face. It was at that moment she recognized the man as one of her neighbors but did not know his name.
Deputies went to the suspects apartment and confronted him. The 32-year-old suspect cooperated with the officers questions. It appears that the suspect had “an immoral interest in the complainant’s clothing.”
The suspect was taken into custody for felony home invasion and transported to the Huron County Jail.
The suspect also had a child staying with him. He left that child unattended while he committed the home invasion. The child has since been turned over to family. CPS was also notified.
While investigating any previous problems in the suspects past, they found that he has previous sexually related convictions
The Huron County Magistrate set the suspect’s bond at $10,000 cash. He remains locked up in the Huron County Jail at this time.
The Huron County Prosecutors Office will be reviewing the incident on Monday when formal charges plus possibly others are expected to be issued.
