PORTER TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man who was allegedly caught red-handed breaking into a home near Lawton started chasing the pair who called 911 and then led police on a chase, authorities say.

According to Michigan State Police, a woman called 911 around 6 p.m. Saturday to say she had gone to her parents' home in Porter Township and found someone there. That person threatened to kill the woman and her husband, she told dispatchers.

She and her husband left. While the woman was still on the phone with 911, she told dispatchers she spotted the suspect leaving her parents' home in their car. The suspect saw the pair and began to chase them.

Lawton police soon arrived and started chasing the suspect. The suspect eventually crashed the car and then took off on foot. MSP brought in a search dog and, after several hours of tracking, found him.
