Police found a marijuana pipe at the scene, but were unable to determine whether it belonged to the man whose home it was or whether it had fallen out of the intruder’s pocket.
The intruder told police that the woman had told him her husband wouldn’t be home. He also said that the husband instigated the fight.
The intruder was taken to Grand County Jail and booked on simple assault, a misdemeanor, and residential burglary, a felony. He was also served with a temporary protective order against the woman of the house, who had previously reported him numerous times to law enforcement for messaging and emailing her. Officers had been unable to locate the intruder until he was apprehended.
