TEKONSHA, Mich. (WZZM) -- A dog rescued its owner during a break in overnight in Calhoun County. The man was being assaulted by an intruder when the dog started to attack.
The sheriff's department responded to the home in the 900 block of Old US 27 around 12:40 a.m. Sunday.
The 24-year-old homeowner said the suspect came in through an unlocked window in the kitchen and attacked him.
During the assault, the suspect was bitten several times by the owner's dog, causing serious injuries.
The suspect, a 22-year-old man from Coldwater, was found at a local hospital where he was being treated for his injuries. He was later transferred to Borges Medical Center for reconstructive surgery.
The case remains under investigation and deputies tell WZZM 13 warrants will be sought at a later time.
