WINDSOR, ONT. -- A 36-year-old Windsor man has been arrested after allegedly breaking into two homes and assaulting a woman early Thursday morning.

Police say around 2:30 a.m. Thursday, officers responded to a report of a break and enter at a residence in the 1000 block of Parent Avenue.

Police say they were able to obtain a detailed description of the suspect.

Around 6 a.m. officers responded to a report of another break and enter at a residence in the 700 block of Elliot Street East.

Police say a resident was woken up when they heard a noise inside the house and saw a man in their home.

The resident yelled at the suspect, causing him to flee. Police were again able to get a detailed description of the suspect.
