Intruder brought chocolates, wouldn’t leave, police say

STATE COLLEGE — Police have jailed a central Pennsylvania man on criminal trespass charges after he dropped of Valentine’s Day chocolates at an apartment, then refused to leave after returning a short time later.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 24-year-old Alex Balgobin, who was arrested Saturday evening by police in State College.

Police say in the Centre Daily Times report that Balgobin dropped off the box shortly before 5 p.m. with a note on one side that said “whore” and a note on the other side of the candy box saying, “she’s beautiful.”

Police say the apartment residents didn’t know Balgobin and were puzzled when he returned an hour later, sat down to watch TV, and refused to leave.

Police arrived and arrested and removed Balgobin who allegedly told officers he knew he wasn’t supposed to be there.
