ANN ARBOR, MI- Police are investigating another home invasion in a string of recent break-ins reported near the University of Michigan campus.
Police were called shortly before 9 a.m. Monday, July 17 to the 100 block of North Ingalls Street for the reported break-in, said Ann Arbor police Detective Lt. Matthew Lige. The location is just north of the university’s Rackham Graduate School.
A University of Michigan student awoke to sounds of someone in his apartment, Lige said. The suspect – described as a heavy-set black male in his 20s, wearing a gray hoodie – fled when confronted, but got away with the man’s wallet.
The U-M Division of Public Safety and Security is looking for a man who they believe to be the suspect of a string of home invasions on and around Packard Road.
Police believe the suspect entered the apartment through an unlocked door, Lige said.
The home invasion is one of numerous break-ins reported in Ann Arbor in recent weeks, and police say the incident is being evaluated for possible connections.
Five home invasions were reported between July 2 and July 10 near the University of Michigan’s campus.
All of the home invasions have targeted off-campus apartments and all but one of the home invasions have been reported to involve unlocked doors.
Those with information about this incident are asked to contact Ann Arbor police at 734-794-6939 or email@example.com.
