Police: Butler man stalks woman, breaks into Bruin home

A Butler man was accused of stalking a woman and refusing to leave her Bruin home after entering without permission, according to charges filed by state police Wednesday, April 10.

Police said Evan T. Andreassi, 27, stayed in the home even after the woman asked him to leave and retrieved a pistol.

He was charged with felony criminal trespass, misdemeanor stalking and summary harassment after several incidents last month.

Police said the woman reported Andreassi coming to her place of work and initiating an hourlong conversation. Despite the woman’s requests that Andreassi leave, he stayed for another half-hour, according to documents.

Three days after this interaction, police said the woman noticed a dark colored vehicle parked in front of her work while she was inside. The vehicle then followed her home, turning around further down the road.

Documents showed Andreassi later visited the woman’s home and knocked on her door five different times. Police said the woman never answered the door.

On March 8, police said the woman was awaiting guests at her home and unlocked her door. The woman told police she later heard her door open and found Andreassi standing in her living room.

Police said the woman retrieved a .22 caliber pistol and demanded Andreassi leave her home. Despite the requests, documents showed Andreassi remained in the home and asked why he couldn’t stay. He left half an hour after entering the residence, police said.

Following the intrusion, police said the woman reported Andreassi continued showing up at her place of work, causing her to hide.

Andreassi was placed in Butler County Prison on Tuesday, April 9, in lieu of $10,000. His preliminary hearing before District Judge Lewis Stoughton is scheduled June 18.
