YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) — A Struthers man was arraigned in municipal court Friday on charges he forced his way inside a home and attacked a man inside.

Judge Carla Baldwin set bond at $15,000 for Sergio Galazia, 32, on charges of aggravated burglary and misdemeanor assault. He turned himself in Thursday at the Mahoning County Jail.

The mother of Galazia’s two children told police May 5 that he tried to force his way inside her home in the 2800 block of Rogers Road and they argued over a male friend of hers who Galazia did not want around their children.

Galazia left but later returned, forced his way inside and beat the man while he was sleeping on a couch, reports said.
