Two Macomb County men were charged Tuesday with assaulting and robbing a homeowner in Huron Township, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office.

David Janowski, 27, of Romeo was charged with first-degree home invasion, assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during a felony, according to court records.

Michael Levelle, 28, of Chesterfield Township also was charged Tuesday in 34th District Court in Romulus with first-degree home invasion and assault with a deadly weapon.

Huron Township police say the two men broke into a home at about 4:37 a.m. Sunday on the 23500 block of Manor Drive in Swan Creek Mobile Home Community.

Officials said a victim told police multiple men had entered the home and held one of the residents at gunpoint.

Police said no shots were fired. Investigators searched the area for the vehicle the men allegedly used to flee and found it minutes later near the intersection of Judd and Clark, about a half-mile away.

Authorities said officers arrested three men in connection with the crime, including a 27-year-old St. Clair Shores man.

Police said detectives believe the incident was not random, and at least one of the home’s residents has a relationship with at least one of the accused.

The home invasion charge is a felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison. The assault charge, also a felony, is punishable by up to four years in prison. The possession of a firearm during a felony carries a two-year prison sentence. 

A judge ordered both held on a $50,000 bond and scheduled their next court appearance for Aug. 29.
