WOODHAVEN, Mich. (WXYZ) — Two suspects from Detroit were arrested in a home invasion in Woodhaven.

Just after 7 a.m. Wednesday morning, a woman told police she was home alone and heard people in her house, located in the 25000 block of Reeck Road.

The caller told police she was hiding in the basement and could hear people moving through her home.

Woodhaven police arrived at the home and determined that the suspects ran away. After officers set up a perimeter, both suspects were captured within a block of the initial break in.

The suspects, ages 21 and 23, are being held at the Woodhaven Police Department pending formal charges and multiple arrest warrants from other agencies.

Officers recovered all of the items stolen from the home along with the suspects' vehicle, which was seized at the scene.

Police say the victim was not harmed and it was a random, isolated incident.
