City police have charged a man with burglary and other offenses for allegedly damaging a 32-inch flat-screen television and putting a hole in a wall – all after he shoved a woman who tried to keep him out of her house.
Police also say Timothy Leo Rollins, 23, threatened to hit the woman and have “some of his female friends” beat him up, court records say. The woman was ready to inquire about obtaining an emergency protection-from-abuse order.
Police heard about Rollins’ alleged actions after arriving on the 800 block of Wood Street around 6pm Wednesday. The woman said she had put some of Rollins’ belongings on the front porch but he insisted on going into the house. She said no and blocked the front door.
She said he shoved her away, went to an upstairs bedroom and damaged the television and created the hole. Police said the television was valued at about $340; they placed a damage value of about $500 to the hole is the wall.
Another woman who said she lives in the house said she bought the television for her female housemate and saw Rollins shove the other woman from the front door.
Rollins, of 566 Elmhurst Ave., Apt. B, also in the city, was not at the house when police arrived but was apprehended a short time later, the records say.
He was charged with burglary, criminal trespass, criminal mischief, terroristic threats, simple assault and harassment. He was arraigned Thursday by on-duty District Judge Todd Strohe of Bangor and committed to Northampton County Prison after failing to post $10,000 bail.
