Clearfield County man faces charges after breaking into home and threatening to kidnap baby

CLEARFIELD – A jailed Clearfield County man is facing more than 10 criminal charges for breaking into a woman’s home and threatening to take her baby.

State Police charged 21-year-old Charles Wilkinson of Hawk Run with burglary, kidnapping, resisting arrest, and several other offenses after he allegedly entered the victim’s Morris Township residence earlier this month.

Wilkinson refused to leave and reportedly told the woman he was going to take the six-month old child because it was his.

Police say they believe Wilkinson was under the influence of drugs because he was behaving so erratically when they arrived at the scene.

Wilkinson waived his right to a preliminary hearing Wednesday, so his case will go to Clearfield County Court.

His bail is set at $100,000.
