A 26-year-old man from Halifax faces eight charges after allegedly breaking into two people's south-end Halifax apartments earlier this week.

Halifax police said Kem Chimezie Chindah was arrested on Thursday without incident.

A 23-year-old woman told police she woke up and saw him standing in her bedroom on Monday morning.

A 19-year-old man then came forward and said the same man came into his apartment just before 5 a.m.

No one was injured and nothing was stolen.

Chindah is due in court on Friday after spending a night in custody.

He faces two counts of break and enter from Monday. He also faces six counts of breaching a court order.
