BOONE, N.C. — A Boone man arrested earlier this week after he broke into a woman’s apartment and tried to give her a back rub was arrested again after a similar incident on Thursday.

On Monday, Boone police arrested 29-year-old Julio Antonio Yanez and charged him with one misdemeanor count each of breaking and entering and assault on a female.

Police say Yanez entered the woman’s apartment on Oak Street, thinking the residence was that of an old acquaintance. The victim told Yanez to leave, but officials say he then attempted to give the woman a back rub.

On Thursday, a second incident involving Yanez was reported. Yanez allegedly entered a home on West King Street and offered the woman a backrub. After the woman declined, he allegedly stroked the female victim’s arms and back.

Yanez was arrested for misdemeanor assault on a female. He was taken before a Watauga County Magistrate where he was placed under a $4,000 secured bond and assigned a court date of Sept. 17.
