PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - A California man is behind bars after he tried to force his way into a Prescott home.

Police in Prescott say they found 28-year-old Kyle Richards pounding on the door of a house early Wednesday.

Police spokeswoman Amy Bonney says a woman in the home alleges Richards entered her fenced backyard and tried to get in through a sliding door.

The victim says he started screaming and then banged and kicked the front door.

The woman says locked herself and her three children inside a bathroom while calling 911.

Officers on the scene say Richards may have been under the influence of alcohol.

The victims say they did not recognize Richards, who is from Palm Springs.

He has been booked into Yavapai County Jail for trespassing and disorderly conduct.
