An Akron teenager woke up to find an intruder standing over her friend.
Police said the man arrested in the incident was charged in a separate stalking case earlier this year.
Akron police said shortly before 7 a.m. Friday, a woman in the 1600 block of Glenmount Avenue called police to report a stranger inside her house. The man was standing over two teenagers sleeping in the basement, she reported. He tapped them on the shoulder and woke them up, authorities said.
He then walked up the basement steps and fled out a rear door and through several backyards, according to the police report.
Responding officers arrested the suspect in the 400 block of Clinton Avenue. The females were not injured.
Andrew Hayes, 38, of Circle Hill Road SE, North Canton, was charged with burglary and booked into the Summit County Jail.
In April, Hayes was charged with menacing, criminal trespassing and resisting arrest when he allegedly followed a woman home from an Akron gym.
In that incident, police say a woman, 29, reported to police that she was driving home from the gym at 6 a.m. when she noticed a man in a Toyota Corolla following her.
He pulled up next to her car and started yelling at her. She continued to drive toward her home as he followed.
When she arrived in her neighborhood off South Arlington Street, she started honking her car to get someone’s attention.
As she pulled into her driveway, her husband — a police officer — was waiting. The driver got out of his car and started to approach the off-duty officer, who ordered the man to the ground at gunpoint.
The suspect started to back away. The officer struggled to take the man to the ground and handcuff him; a neighbor came outside to assist the officer.
