SHERMAN TOWNSHIP — A 27-year-old Fountain man was arrested after the Mason County Sheriff’s Office received a complaint from the man’s ex-wife that he invaded her home and attempted to murder her male friend Sunday morning by choking him, according to Mason County Sheriff Kim Cole.

“The victim came into the sheriff’s office to report her ex-husband had allegedly broke into her house around 5 a.m.,” said Cole.

“The female victim was awakened to her ex-husband reportedly sitting on top of a male friend of hers in her bedroom, choking him to the point the male victim could not speak. The suspect fled the house when the female screamed. The suspect was located later in the day and arrested. The male victim, a 22-year-old man from Ludington, did not seek medical treatment.”

The incident reportedly occurred in the 2000 block of East Sugar Grove Road in Sherman Township.
