BYRON CENTER, Mich. (AP) Police in Puerto Rico say a 41-year-old Michigan native visiting as a tourist has been stabbed to death during a break-in on the island's west coast.

The police say the attack happened early Monday in the beach town of Rincon. They say the assailant broke into the Arena y Mar Apartments through a sliding glass door in the middle of the night.

Brett Walquist apparently walked in on him in the kitchen and was stabbed at least three times. Walquist lived in Beavercreek, Ohio.

WOOD-TV says that Walquist grew up in Michigan and was a graduate of Byron Center High School. It says his brother operates the family owned Alger Bikes in Grand Rapids and says Walquist used to work there.

So far, no arrests are reported.
