A 51-year-old man was arrested this morning for trying to break into a shelter in Petaluma, police said. Officers responded to report of a suspect trying to break a window at the Mary Isaak Center at 900 Hopper St. at 2 a.m., according to Petaluma police.

The suspect, who was identified as Keith Service, had apparently just left the shelter and was told he could not re-enter in the middle of the night, police said. Service allegedly broke a window with a large knife and threatened to kill a resident inside, police said. Arriving officers found Service climbing halfway through the broken window, police said. He was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon and vandalism and booked into Sonoma County Jail.
