Resident scares off would-be intruder in Ypsilanti
Ypsilanti police said they arrested a man early this morning after he attempted to break into a home in the 900 block of West Cross Avenue.
About 12:35 a.m., the man knocked on the door, and, after getting no response, attempted to climb in through a rear window, a police news release said.
A 31-year-old man inside heard a noise at the window and saw the man, who left the property, the release said. Officers responded and arrested the 52-year-old man, who is homeless.
He was taken to the Washtenaw County Jail. Charges are pending.
