A 52-year-old Sulphur Springs man was taken into custody early Sunday morning after he allegedly forced his way into two homes.

Harold James Carter was arrested at 7:35 a.m. Sunday on two second-degree felony burglary of habitation charges. He remained in the county jail early Monday morning on $25,000 bond per charge, according to jail reports.

Dispatchers received a call alleging a man forced his way into a home in the 200 block of Nicholson Street, knocking the resident down as he entered. Police were dispatched. A Harris Street residence behind the Nicholson Street home was also said to have been broken into, reports noted.

The Nicholson Street resident told police he was awakened by banging at the back door, then someone at the front door. When the resident went to the front door, the man pushed on the door, breaking the chain lock on the glass door. The resident pushed the suspect, who fell, got back up and then forced his way inside, according to police reports.

When the intruder went toward a bedroom where the resident’s family was sleeping, he yelled at his wife to call police. The intruder heard and ran.

At some point during the intrusion, he allegedly stated he was “looking for someone,” hence the entry, police noted on offense reports.

Two officers, upon arrival, began checking the area around the Nicholson Street house, looking for the intruder. Other officers advised they had a man they believed to be the intruder detained in the Nicholson Street yard, according to police reports.

The suspect, identified as Carter, “volunteered” that he was the “the one” who entered both the Nicholson Street residence and the Harris Street house behind it, police noted on arrest reports.
