A Mitchell man was arrested for second-degree burglary and simple assault Saturday morning after allegedly breaking into a residence and assaulting two men inside.

Michael Wilson, 31, allegedly arrived around 8:10 a.m. Saturday at a residence on the 200 block of West 9th Avenue, where he kicked in the front door and engaged in an altercation with two men inside, according to Mitchell Police Sgt. Joel Reinesch.

The incident was reported by a passerby who allegedly witnessed the event. The two men in the residence suffered minor injuries, and the door and door jam were damaged, Reinesch said.

Wilson left the scene prior to police arriving, and he was located at his residence on the 900 block of East Ash Avenue, where he admitted to his involvement, Reinesch said. Wilson was charged with second-degree burglary, a class 3 felony, punishable upon conviction by up to 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine; and simple assault, a class one misdemeanor, punishable upon conviction by up to one year in jail and a $2,000 fine.

Reinesch said there was another person with Wilson at the time of the incident who has not yet been located.
