GANGES TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a man poured what’s believed to be acid on the face and chest of a woman during an attack at her home in western Michigan.

The Allegan County sheriff’s department says the 53-year-old man caused a lot of damage at the 54-year-old woman’s home in Ganges Township early Wednesday before she got home.

After she arrived, the department says the man tackled her before pouring suspected acid on her and making “several unusual statements.” Details weren’t immediately released. She sought help from neighbors. He fled and was arrested in Berrien County.

The Allegan County sheriff’s office says the man is a habitual offender and has been charged with torture, home invasion and domestic violence.

He could be arraigned Thursday.
