KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Police say a homeowner who had two people break-in to his home Saturday ended up being arrested while the suspects escaped.

It happened around 7:12 p.m. in the 1100 block of Hays Park Avenue in Kalamazoo.

We’re told the two armed suspects forced their way inside the home and assaulted the man inside with a handgun.  One of the suspects reportedly fired the handgun before running off.

Police later determined that the house was targeted so they obtained a search warrant and found drugs and a firearm.

The resident was arrested and now faces serious felony charges.

The suspects involved in the home invasion are described as 2 black males, between 6”4 and 6”6, wearing dark clothing.
