One arrested, another sought after home invasion in Ypsilanti
A man was arrested Thursday after Ypsilanti police said he stole a laptop computer and some money during a home invasion, then pulled a knife on two men who confronted him about it.
Police arrested the 51-year-old man about 1 p.m., roughly 12 hours after the incident, but continue to work to identify a second man involved.
According to police, two men walked into a home in the 700 block of Emmet Street about 12:36 a.m. while two men were inside. When the residents questioned why the men entered the home, the men left, police said.
The residents noticed they were missing money and a laptop computer, according to a police news release. They found the men four blocks away, police said, and confronted them. That's when the 51-year-old man pulled a knife and threatened them, before leaving the area, police said. The laptop was found in the back yard.
The 51-year-old man is at the Washtenaw County Jail as charges are pending. Anyone with information can call police at (734) 483-9510.
