WARREN — A man whom a judge had banned from Liberty while his case was pending was sentenced to two years behind bars after pleading guilty to burglary, aggravated assault and theft, according to court records.

Robert T. Calvin, 31, of Diamond, has been held in the Trumbull County Jail since March 25 and is scheduled to be held there until Nov. 1, 2020, according to jail and court records.

Calvin was also ordered to pay $3,000 in restitution.

Police were called just after 2 a.m. March 24 to 115 Laurel St., Liberty, where Gaetano J. DiCenso, 51, a friend of Calvin’s, answered the door bloodied and reported he was punched about 20 times, according to a police report. The man later told police the two argued earlier in the day when Calvin asked him for money.

Calvin later showed up at DiCenso’s house, ripped off a screen door and pushed himself inside, the report states. There was blood all over DiCenso and his couch and there was blood and bruising on Calvin’s hands, the report states.

DiCenso reported that $200 in cash, a prescription, credit cards, his driver’s license and his Social Security card were stolen.

When police arrived, DiCenso told them that Calvin was still in the house. After Calvin ran into the backyard, officers stopped him at gunpoint as he attempted to climb a fence, the report states.
