A Massachusetts man was arrested on Wednesday in Benton after a resident reported that two men were attempting to break into her home on Wyman road, said Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

The resident reported the incident at around noon on Wednesday.

The two men fled in a car after the homeowner confronted them and were stopped about a mile away by state troopers. Tyrone Fleurimont, 31, from Roslindale, Massachusetts, was charged with criminal threatening. Troopers also removed rugs and cash from the vehicle.

No one was injured.
