PLYMOUTH — A Kingston man broke into an ex-girlfriend’s home and violated a Protection From Abuse order on Sunday morning, according to borough police.

Police say Christopher Ray Boraski, 33, of Kingston, violated a PFA placed against him by an ex-girlfriend, after he allegedly broke into a residence on Flat Road and stole two cans of Natural Ice beer.

According to a criminal complaint:

Officers from Plymouth and Edwardsville borough responded to a call that someone broke into a woman’s residence through the dining room window while the woman, later identified as Tammy Puciata, was sleeping.

While officers searched the interior and outside of Tammy Puciata’s home, she told officers she believed her ex-boyfriend Christopher Boraski broke the window because of a text message she received from him the complaint mentions.

The text message read: “Hun I gotta bust window.”

Officers located a male, soon identified as Puciata’s ex-boyfriend, Christopher Boraski, in a vehicle parked in Puciata’s driveway. Boraski was laying down in the vehicle’s seat.

When police ordered Boraski to get out of the vehicle, he allegedly gave police the officer a hard time and had to be taken to the ground before being placed into custody.

Police observed Boraski with a laceration on his left leg to which he said he sustained from an assault. Police noticed there was blood on a white lawn chair and small amounts of blood on the outside window sill of the residence.

There were two Natural Ice beer cans near Boraski’s vehicle matching an identical beer can left inside Puciata’s residence. Puciata told police that two beer cans had been missing from her refrigerator.

Puciata stated that she had an active PFA against Boraski stemming from a string of incidents between the two. The PFA states that Boraski has called Puciata filthy names and that he allegedly spends his money on drugs so she has to pay for rent all by herself. Boraski is not allowed to have contact with Puciatta until 2021 when the PFA expires.

Boraski was arraigned Sunday morning by District Judge Ferris Webby on charges of burglary, criminal trespassing, loitering and prowling at night time, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief.

Unable to post bail set at $20,000, Boraski was remanded to the Luzerne County Correctional Facility.
