DOWAGIAC, Mich. — A man was arrested after a home invasion Sunday night in Dowagiac.

A person called 911 around 10:15 p.m. and told dispatchers a man had kicked in the front door of his apartment on Amerihost Drive and come inside. A couple and their three children were inside the apartment at the time of the break-in.

Police say the husband confronted the suspect and told him he was armed, leading to the suspect running away. Officers found the suspect in a nearby building with a knife and arrested him on a charge of armed home invasion.

Police say the incident appears to be random.
