Police: Man runs into woods after breaking into northern Michigan home, later calls 911 because he got lost

A man needed help from police after he got lost when he fled an alleged home invasion in northern Michigan.

Police were called to a home in Williamsburg around 7:05 p.m. Oct. 6 after a homeowner scared off a home invader. 

Police said a woman was watching television when she saw a man who she thought was her husband walk into the room. However, she realized it was not her husband and started screaming, causing her husband to come downstairs and tell the man to leave.

Michigan State Police troopers said they found the alleged home invader, Kevin William Tighe, 43, hiding nearby in his parents' backyard. A trooper tried to speak to him but he fled into the woods.

A K-9 team looked for Tighe but could not find him.

Later that evening, police said Tighe called 911 to report that he was lost. He flagged down the troopers who responded and was arrested.

Tighe is charged with breaking and entering without permission and resisting and obstructing police. His bond was set at $1,000, 10%. He is due back in court Oct. 26.
