The Owen Sound Police Service was contacted Friday after the owners of a westside house returned home at about 7 p.m. to find their residence had been forcibly entered. The person responsible was still in their basement, acting Sgt. Bill Ringel said in a police news release.

As the homeowner called police, a man left the home. He was found by officers a short time later in the same neighbourhood.

After a short scuffle, the man was arrested but not before spitting blood onto an officer’s face, Ringel said.

A 27-year-old Owen Sound man has been charged with break and enter, mischief, assaulting a police officer and assault with the intent to resist arrest.
