Robert Meney, 46, of Bismarck, is in trouble today (Aug 11) after trying to force his way into a Mandan home with two young girls inside.

The girls, ages 15 and 11, answered a knock at the door on the afternoon of Sunday, August 9. To their horror, a strange man then grabbed the younger girl's arm and attempted to drag her out of the house.

The girl kicked Meney and shut the door on him before notifying Mandan Police, who subsequently tracked him down at a nearby gas station.

Meney has been charged in Morton County Court with disorderly conduct and criminal trespass.

Meney also has a criminal record in the state of Illinois.
