Resident Fends Off Break-in Suspects At Calhoun County Home
Authorities are looking for two suspects accused of breaking into a home Tuesday morning in Calhoun County. Michigan State Police troopers say a 57-year-old Athens Township resident was sleeping when there was a knock at the front door at around 10:30am. Before he could get to the door, a male and female suspect had already entered through the back.
The resident retrieved a knife to try and fend them off. The male suspect reportedly showed a handgun and pointed it at the resident but then the two suspects fled the scene in a vehicle. No injuries were reported.
The vehicle is described as an older 1992 to 1995 Chevrolet Suburban blue or dark colored. It was last seen headed west on "W" Ave. toward Kalamazoo County. The male suspect is described as a white male, 5'7" to 5'10" tall, scruffy and thin wearing a ball cap with a straight bill. The female is described as white, 5'4" to 5'6" tall with dark brown hair pulled up into a bun. She was wearing dark cut-off shorts. No other information was provided.
Anyone with information should contact the Michigan State Police Marshall post at 269-558-0500 or Silent Observer at 269-964-3888.
Michigan State Police troopers were assisted at the scene by the Calhoun County Sheriff's office, Athens Township Police department and Tribal PD.
