Police arrest man accused of confronting Ann Arbor woman, attempting to break into her home
A 21-year-old Detroit man was arrested early Sunday morning after he got into a confrontation with an Ann Arbor woman and then tried to break into her home, police said.
Ann Arbor police Lt. Renee Bush said the woman was letting her dogs out at about 1:50 a.m. at her home in the 500 block of South Fourth Avenue when she saw a man walk down a staircase between two apartment buildings. Bush said the man approached her, began to get in her face and was yelling.
The woman told the man he needed to leave, but he wouldn't and at one point put his hand on the screen door to block her from leaving, Bush said. The woman again told the man to leave and threatened to turn her dogs on him, Bush said.
The woman managed to get into her home and shut the door behind her, according to Bush. The man then started to kick the door to try to get into the home, but the woman locked the door and called police, Bush said.
Using the description of the man the woman provided, police arrested a man in the 100 block of West Madison Street, Bush said.
