Deputies say this Scott Tombaugh went into a woman’s home and crawled into bed with her.

Deputies in Grand Traverse County say they arrested Scott Tombaugh from Lake City weeks later and brought him back to Missaukee County.

“As the old saying goes, everyone’s home is their castle and you like to feel safe in your home,” says Undersheriff Wil Yancer, Missaukee County Sheriff’s Office.

Yancer says it happened in the early morning hours of March 1.

Scott Tombaugh was not the man the victim expected to come through her door.

“The victim was expecting her boyfriend to come home,” Yancer says. “He worked a late shift so she had actually gotten up and unlocked the door. [Tombaugh], 2:30 in the morning, had wandered into the wrong house and got into the wrong bed and had reached out and touched this woman.”

She demanded Tombaugh leave.

“She woke up,” Yancer says. “She confronted this male individual that she was familiar with from just around different businesses in Lake City but doesn’t really know him.”

Deputies arrested Tombaugh last weekend at his job at Munson in Traverse City.

Scott Tombaugh faces two charges: 1st degree home invasion and 4th degree criminal sexual conduct.

If convicted, he could spend more than two decades in prison.
