A 21-year-old Mankato man stands accused of breaking into a home on North Broad Street, apparently thinking it was his residence.
Isaias Alberto Ramirez is charged with two counts of burglary and two counts of assault for the incident that happened around 2:00am on August 19th.
According to the complaint, a husband and wife and their two children were sleeping when they heard banging at their front door.
The husband went downstairs and as soon as he opened the door, Ramirez pushed him aside and forced his way into the house. The husband and Ramirez began struggling and the husband was eventually able to push Ramirez out of the door and yell to his wife to call police.
Ramirez then allegedly forced his way into the residence a second time. He was again physically aggressive toward the husband and made his way into the living room, he allegedly kicked the family’s dog.
Police then arrived and found Ramirez still in the home, wearing a shirt, jeans and one sock.
The officer removed Ramirez, who had a blood alcohol level of .17 and said “I just want to go to bed.”
Police say Ramirez’ girlfriend then showed up and told them they became separated while downtown and their address on North Broad Street shares similar numbers with the incident house.
