A 49-year-old man is accused of breaking down a door of a Langley apartment and kicking an occupant in the head several times Nov. 26, court documents state.
Prosecutors charged Michael A. Rousseau of Clinton in Island County Superior Court Nov. 29 with burglary in the first degree and assault in the fourth degree. If convicted of the charges, he could face more than two years in prison under the standard sentencing range.
An officer with the Langley Police Department responded to a 911 call from a Manchester Way apartment. The woman who lived there said she and her friend “had a problem” with Rousseau earlier in the day but it had been resolved, the office wrote.
Rousseau allegedly returned a few hours later, broke down the front door of the apartment and kicked the woman’s friend in the head multiples times, the police report states.
Rousseau told the officer that he returned to the house because he felt the woman was cheating on him and he couldn’t control his anger. He admitted to breaking down the door but said he punched the man in the face, the report states.
