A California man was arrested Sunday in State College after allegedly entering a private residence and harassing a female resident.

According to the affidavit, Robert Wolfgang III, 22, of Belmont, Calif., entered an apartment at about 5:30 a.m. on the 400 block of West Beaver Avenue. Police were called after the female victim claimed to have been awoken by a man “petting her arm” and “hovering over her.”

The victim and a male witness identified Wolfgang when police arrived, the affidavit said. The victim said she didn’t know Wolfgang and ordered him to leave several times. The witness said he confronted Wolfgang in the apartment where he appeared “highly intoxicated” and couldn’t engage in conversation.

When police took Wolfgang into custody, the affidavit said, he allegedly told officers the last thing he remembered was Friday. He was taken to Mount Nittany Medical Center due to his high level of intoxication.

Wolfgang was taken to Centre County Correctional Facility after he was cleared by doctors, police said. The case was arraigned before Judge Thomas Jordan, according to court documents. He was charged with burglary, criminal trespassing and harassment.

Bail was set at $20,000, court documents said. Wolfgang posted bail and was released Monday, a correctional officer said. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 28.
