• Charges Filed Against Man Who Broke Into San Marino Home


    ALHAMBRA (CNS) – A half-dozen felony charges have been filed against a 24-year-old man accused of breaking into a San Marino home, tying up a housekeeper at knifepoint and demanding money from her, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced today.

    Yongcheng Huang pleaded not guilty Tuesday afternoon to two counts of false imprisonment by violence and one count each of first-degree burglary, home invasion robbery, kidnapping for ransom and attempted home invasion robbery.

    Huang allegedly forced his way into the home last Friday, tied up the housekeeper, demanded money from the woman and then waited for the homeowner to return when the housekeeper said she didn’t have any cash.

    Huang allegedly left the house after the homeowner handed over $900, according to prosecutors, and was arrested soon afterward.

    He is due back at the Alhambra courthouse on May 13, when a date is scheduled to be set for a hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to require him to stand trial.

    If convicted as charged, he faces a maximum sentence of life in prison, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
