A Kennewick man was arrested early Sunday morning after he refused to leave a Pasco residence, and pulled and banged on the house’s door while demanding to be let in.
Pasco police were called to the home near 16th Avenue and Octave Street just before 3:30 a.m., when a resident called and said a man they didn’t know and who appeared intoxicated was yanking on their screen door and pounding on it, a news release said.
That man, Manuel DeJesus Aguilar, 36, was still at the residence when officers arrived. He was booked into the Franklin County jail on suspicion of second-degree trespassing and disorderly conduct.
Police noted in the news release that they regularly deal with such incidents. This particular incident comes just over a week after Hanford worker Travis Yeates reportedly broke into a west Pasco house through a roll-up garage door. The home’s owner, Corey Chapman, shot and killed Yeates with a handgun, and authorities are investigating whether the shooting was justified.
