SALISBURY — Showing kindness to a homeless man resulted in two rocks thrown through a woman’s house months later.

Rahjan Wesley Crawford, 29, was jailed Sunday for a charge of felony breaking and entering for allegedly throwing two large rocks through the front glass door of a home in the 2600 block Faith Road. The glass door shattered as a result.

Maj. John Sifford of the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office said the home belonged to a woman who allowed Crawford to shower at her home earlier in the year after he became a regular at her business. When she was driving Crawford back to Salisbury, he said something inappropriate and she kicked him out of the car, Sifford said.

He reappeared at the woman’s house this weekend and allegedly tossed rocks through her door after asking to speak with her, Sifford said.

Crawford remained in the Rowan County Detention Center Monday with a $20,000 bond.
