SILVER LAKE — The case of a Canton man charged in the May 29 burglary of two North Dover Road homes is going to a Summit County grand jury.
According to Stow Municipal Court records, 46-year-old Brian J. Gyulai did not enter pleas to first-degree felony aggravated burglary and second-degree felony burglary at his initial hearing May 30 and the case was sent to a grand jury via the court's direct indictment program. A June 20 arraignment is tentatively scheduled in Summit County Court of Common Pleas, pending a grand jury indictment.
Gyulai is being held in Summit County Jail on a 10 percent of $750,000 bond. His attorney did not immediately return a phone call seeking comment.
According to police reports, police responded after a man reported that someone threw a rock through his home's kitchen window in North Dover's 3200 block at a little before 4 a.m. May 29. Police said that when they arrived, they found Gyulai in his vehicle in the home's driveway. He had cuts on his hands and face and small pieces of glass were found on his clothing.
Police said they found a purse in the vehicle that a woman living in the home said had been near the window.
The reports said other property was found in the vehicle that was allegedly taken a short time earlier from a home in North Dover's 3300 block.
Police Lt. Steve Justice said Wednesday that the home was allegedly entered through an open attached garage door and items taken included two purses and food from a refrigerator.
Justice said the three purses together contained assorted items, including an unknown amount of cash and change, gift cards and credit cards.
All the items were recovered and returned to the owners, said Justice.
The aggravated burglary charge is due to the rock being considered a "weapon," said Justice.
