    Man faces felony

    trespassing charge

    BENNINGTON — A local man is facing a felony charge after a woman told police he came into her home Aug. 29 and “trashed” it.

    Tylor McDonald, 21, of Bennington, was arraigned in Bennington criminal court Monday on a felony count of unlawful trespass into an occupied home. He pleaded innocent and was released without bail.

    In an affidavit, Officer Thalia Hudson of the Bennington Police Department said she went to a woman’s home around 12:35 a.m. Aug. 29 after the woman reported that McDonald had come into her home and flipped over furniture.

    The woman told Hudson that McDonald had tried to get into her home but she wouldn’t let him in and told him to leave. However, the back window was open and McDonald was able to get inside.

    The woman called a friend for help and the friend also told police she saw McDonald in the house.

    According to the woman, McDonald “flipped the furniture over because he was mad.”

    McDonald had been served a “no trespass,” order which forbade him from being at the woman’s home July 27.

    According to Hudson, McDonald was convicted in March of unlawful trespass onto land, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.
