EASTERN VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A man was arrested Saturday night after police say he broke into a family home.
Michael Bostic is accused of residential entry and public intoxication.
According to the husband and father living in the home Bostic reportedly broke into, the 21 year old came in through the front door. The door was locked, but the victim does not believe it was dead bolted. According to him, it sounded like Bostic simply forced his way through the door.
The suspect was found in the bathroom inside the home, just feet from the bedrooms of two young boys.
The victim and his family hope this serves as an important lesson for those in their neighborhood in eastern Vigo County to be more responsible with their weekend parties.
