A convicted sex offender is back behind bars on home invasion charges.
Crowley police say 47-year-old Michael Rene Matthews broke into a home around 2:00 this morning in the northwest section of town. The resident barricaded hid in a safe location and called 911. Matthews was arrested at the scene shortly after police arrived.
Investigators say Matthews had been soliciting work from the victim and other nearby residents in the days leading up to the alleged incident.
Matthew is being held without bond.
