COOLIDGE — A young woman in Coolidge received a scare when a strange man broke a back window in the home she was living in.

According to Pinal County Superior Court records, Donald L. Wayman Huff Jr., 37, of Casa Grande is facing charges of criminal trespass, possession of burglary tools and criminal damage.

At 11:22 p.m. on Sept. 17, police received a 911 call from a home in the 3400 block of West State Route 287. A young woman told officers that a man had parked his bicycle in the front yard of the home and then walked around the home and stepped onto the back porch.

The man allegedly broke a back window and the woman ran to the bathroom to call 911. The 18-year-old woman also called her mother. When her mother arrived at the home, she spotted the man walking his bicycle west on SR 287.

Officers found blood on the broken window. When they stopped Wayman Huff, they noticed a cut on his right hand. Wayman Huff allegedly told officers that he cut his hand on his bicycle and denied breaking the window.

The two women allegedly identified Wayman Huff as the man who broke the window. Officers noticed that Wayman Huff seemed to have some mental health problems and had him transported to Banner Casa Grande Medical Center for the cut to his hand. Wayman Huff was also allegedly found in possession of a wrench that could have been used to break the window.
