Big Rapids Police: Intruders Entered Sleeping Woman’s Home, Threw Potato At Her

A woman woke up Wednesday morning to find two men in her home, who then threw a potato at her.

Big Rapids police say the home intruders found their way into a house on Woodward Avenue around 3 a.m.

Detectives say the woman yelled at both men to leave, and they did, but not before throwing a potato at her.

Neighbors say they didn’t hear much but the situation has left them double-checking to lock their doors at night.

"It concerns me because there’s quite a few kids who live around here," says Jean Dean, who babysits her grandchildren near the home. "Who knows if they are on drugs or drunk? I got grandkids that live right here. It concerns me deeply."

They are both described being about 20 years old.

One man had longer blonde hair, khaki pants, bad teeth and a gold watch.

Detectives say the other had short blonde hair, basketball shorts and grey athletic shoes.
