Greensburg police arrested a man they accused of breaking into a home Wednesday night and hiding in the basement until a woman he described as his girlfriend returned with another man.

Bryce Lee Sisler, 26, of Hempfield, argued with the woman before going upstairs and confronting the man, according to a criminal complaint. Sisler allegedly attacked and kicked the man, court documents state.

He was jailed Thursday on $75,000 bond.

Police said they were called to an alley near Foster Street and Euclid Avenue at 9:17 p.m. and found Sisler, who appeared to have been drinking. Inside the residence, officers reported finding numerous blood droplets.

The woman told investigators that Sisler had been kicked out of the home on April 27 and that the locks were later changed, police reported.

Sisler is charged with burglary, criminal trespass, reckless endangerment, simple assault, harassment and disorderly conduct.

A May 31 preliminary hearing is set. He did not have an attorney listed in online court records.Renatta Signorini is a Tribune-Review staff writer. Reach her at 724-837-5374, rsignorini@tribweb.com or via Twitter @byrenatta.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
