A 28-year-old Pine Bluff man was arrested Sunday after he allegedly broke into a house on Bay Street.


Louiecole McShan initially told police he had been invited to the house but later admitted that he had not been.


Detective Keith Banks reported that on Saturday, officers were sent to the 1400 block of South Bay Street in response to a reported burglary in progress. A witness called police after seeing a man come from the back of the house and knew the homeowner was not at home.


Officers were called back to the same address Saturday to a reported domestic disturbance, and McShan was caught running out the back door wearing a coat belonging to the victim’s mother. They found a window broken, and the victim said she had not given McShan permission to be in the house.


Banks reported that McShan initially said he had been invited to the house, and when he saw the broken window, he went inside to make sure everything was all right. He later admitted that he had broken in and said he went to the house because he was “in love with the victim.”


On Tuesday, Pine Bluff District Judge John Kearney set a $5,000 bond for McShan after ruling prosecutors have probable cause to charge him with residential burglary,
