Man chases intruders out of Ypsilanti apartment

By Lee Higgins

A man chased two intruders out of his apartment Thursday in the 700 block of Harriet Street in one of two home break-ins reported to Ypsilanti police.

The man reported at 5 p.m. that he woke up to find two men in his apartment and chased them out, but wasn't able to catch them, a police crime summary said.

Earlier Thursday, at 9 a.m., a television, three coats and a 2007 Ford Mustang were reported stolen after someone entered an unlocked door at a home in the 300 block of Jarvis Street. Police said the car was later recovered in the 800 block of Monroe Avenue. The break-in happened between 3 a.m. and 8 a.m.

Investigators do not have any suspects in the cases. Anyone with information can call police at (734) 483-9510.

For whatever reason I'm thinking about the movie Signs where mel gibson and joaquine phenoix characters are running around the house to chase off the "intruder".

Had this man been carrying a CCW license he would have caught these robbers. Always carry your license.

A word to the wise: Do not chase people with a gun outside of your home, even if they just broke into your house. You might end up going to prison for a longer time than the person you're chasing.

I dont know Black, any criminal worth his salt knows a home owner cant shoot them as they run away.

Odd, just this week, we heard from the commenters that there was no crime in Ypsi? <a href=""></a> BTW, here is the map for Ypsi. For some odd reason, you can only look at two types of crime at a time: <a href="" rel='nofollow'></a> <a href="" rel='nofollow'></a> They don't report to crimemapper dot com or whatever.
