Woman charged for trespassing in Emlenton apartment

From staff reports

An Emlenton woman is facing charges for pushing her way into an Emlenton apartment on Saturday.

Franklin state police said in a criminal complaint that Audra Lykins, 20, showed up uninvited to a man’s apartment on Main Street at about 9 p.m. Saturday.

When he opened the door, she pushed past him into the apartment, the complaint said. The man said he told her to leave several times and had to push her out of the apartment, according to the complaint.

After the man closed the door, he said Lykins continued to bang on his door and yell and scream in the hallway, the complaint said.

Police spoke to Lykins, who was only dressed in her underwear, and she said she didn’t live in the apartment complex, the complaint said. The trooper asked her to put on her clothes and leave the property, which she initially refused to do, according to the complaint.

She was arrested and put on her clothes, and a glass smoking pipe was found in her bag, the complaint noted.

Lykins was charged with a felony count of criminal trespass-enter structure and misdemeanor counts of defiant trespass, disorderly conduct and use/possession of drug paraphernalia.

She was arraigned and placed in the Venango County jail after being unable to post bail, and her preliminary hearing is scheduled Wednesday in Central Court.
