Brookville Man Facing Charges for Breaking into Woman’s House Due in Court Wednesday

BROOKVILLE BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – A Brookville man who allegedly broke into a woman’s house and hid behind her couch is facing a hearing on Wednesday.

Court documents indicate 26-year-old Mark Aaron Jr., of Brookville, is scheduled to stand for a preliminary hearing in front of Magisterial District Judge Gregory M Bazylak at 11:15 a.m. on Wednesday, April 1, on the following charges:

– Burglary – Overnight Accommodation, No Person Present, Felony 1
– Criminal Trespass-Break Into Structure, Felony 2
– Defiant Trespass Actual Communication To, Misdemeanor 3

The charges stem from an incident that occurred at a residence in Brookville Borough in February.

According to a criminal complaint, around 4:10 p.m. on February 18, Brookville Borough Police were dispatched to contact the Punxsutawney-based State Police regarding an incident and were informed that while investigating a separate incident, state police had discovered a protection from abuse order (PFA) violation that allegedly occurred on Main Street in Brookville Borough on February 17.

According to the complaint, it was reported that Mark Aaron Jr. had broken into a known female victim’s residence and was present, hiding behind the victim’s couch, when she re-entered her apartment around 4:10 p.m. on February 17. The victim reported Aaron was present at her residence for approximately 30 minutes before he finally left.

The complaint notes the victim had an active protection from abuse order (PFA) against Aaron.

In a follow-up interview, the victim allegedly noted Aaron was not permitted to be at or inside her residence as of February 10, and she had her landlord change the locks on the house, and Aaron was not given a key or permission to enter the house. Aaron then allegedly forced his way into the house by prying on the door frame of a basement door, causing damage to the door, and allowing Aaron to gain entry to the residence.

The charges were filed through Magisterial District Judge Gregory M Bazylak’s office on February 21.
