A Sleepy Eye, Minnesota man is facing charges in Brookings after allegedly trespassing in two homes.
The first incident was reported at about 2:19 Saturday morning at a residence on the 700 block of Main. The homeowner reported a man had entered the residence and when told to leave, had threatened the resident and then fled. He was gone when police arrived.
At 3:10 a.m., a call came from a neighboring house that someone was in their basement. Police found him there and he was arrested. They determined it was the same man who had entered the neighbor’s house.
The 24-year-old is charged with two counts of criminal trespass.
