Eaton County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a home in the village of Mulliken on a report that a man with a gun had broken down the door to the house, held a female victim at gunpoint, and had fired off a round in the house.
According to an Eaton County Sheriff news release, the 40 year old suspect then left the victim’s house and went back to his own residence on Shilton Road in Ionia County. His wife and daughter saw him with the gun and left the house.
The Ionia County Sheriff’s Office and Michigan State Police assisted in securing the suspect’s home while a search warrant was obtained. The suspect, who’s name has not yet been released, was eventually called out of the house and taken into custody.
He was transported to the Eaton County Jail on charges of Home Invasion 1st degree and felonious assault. Additional charges may be issued following review by the Eaton County Prosecutor’s office.
