KANNAPOLIS — A Kannapolis man is behind bars after police say he used a metal pipe to break out a window at his parents’ home at 117 Hilton Ave. and entered the residence.
The Rowan County Sheriff’s Office charged Perry Hager, 44, with felony breaking and entering, larceny after breaking and entering, second-degree trespassing and vandalism Wednesday.
Capt. John Sifford said Master Deputy William Basinger responded to the scene after Rachel Hager, Perry’s mother, called 911 through the help of a sign language translation system. She told dispatchers that Perry was trying to enter the residence after being told not to come back.
Sifford said Perry Hager went outside and began hitting the house after being told to leave by his father, Jerry.
“He found a metal pipe, went to his bedroom window, shattered the glass with the pipe and climb through the window,” Sifford said.
After getting inside, Sifford said Perry Hager used the pipe to break a light fixture that was attached to the room’s ceiling fan.
Sifford said Jerry Hager was able to get the pipe away from Perry Hager.
When Basinger arrived at the scene, Perry Hager was walking away from the house down Hilton Avenue.
He is being held in the Rowan County Detention Center under a $25,000 secured bond.
The day before his arrest, authorities picked up Perry Hager for being “extremely impaired,” Sifford said. He was held in the detention center under an assist until he sobered up. He was not charged that day.
