MOUNT PLEASANT (WJRT) (12/6/2017) - Mount Pleasant police arrested a man Monday morning after he allegedly entered two apartments to look at woman while they slept.

A woman at an apartment in the 1100 block of West Campus Drive called police around 6:55 a.m. after the suspect allegedly entered her apartment through an unlocked door shined a flashlight on her while she was lying in bed.

The woman awoke to the man standing in front of her, which spooked him, and he ran away on foot.

Mount Pleasant Public Safety Department officers saw 33-year-old Charles Henry of Mount Pleasant running down railroad tracks in the area. He matched the description given by the woman.

Henry led police on a foot chase for several blocks before police captured him. He suspect struggled with officers while they tried to handcuff him.

Mount Pleasant police later learned of a similar incident that took place earlier Monday morning in the same area. In that case, a man identified as Henry entered the residence, pulled the covers off a sleeping woman and shined a flashlight on her body.

The woman awoke and sat up, which spooked him and caused him to run away.

Henry was charged with first-degree home invasion, two counts of resisting or obstructing a police officer, lying to a police officer, breaking and entering a residence and failing to comply with the Sex Offender Registry Act. He remained in custody Wednesday at the Isabella County Jail on $70,000 bond.
