A Maricopa man was arrested Saturday on recommended charges of burglary, three counts of disorderly conduct, unlawful imprisonment and threatening/intimidating.
Tyler Becking, 24, entered a residence on Alicia Court in Smith Farms around 1:40 a.m., according to the Maricopa Police Department report. He entered the home through an open window in a downstairs bedroom, where a woman was smoking a cigarette. MPD described the woman as Becking’s target. Once he was inside, the woman later told police, Becking blocked her access to the door and locked it to prevent her from fleeing.
Becking allegedly told her, “I’ll hurt you if you try to leave.”
In fear of her safety and well-being, the woman stated she stayed in the room with Becking for approximately two hours. In this time, Becking allegedly drank an entire bottle of alcohol.
The woman was able to convince Becking to let her use the bathroom next to the bedroom. She told police she locked herself in the bathroom and hid under the sink. Becking reportedly began banging on the bathroom door, causing the woman to scream, alerting roommates upstairs. They proceeded to call 911.
When officers arrived on the scene, Becking was heavily intoxicated in the woman’s bedroom, according to the report. Becking was placed under arrest and booked into Pinal County Jail.
