BRADENTON — A Bradenton man was arrested and charged with trying to enter a home after smashing a back window.

Sheriff deputies were called and one of the men in the home identified Sakas, who was then arrested, deputies said.
Sakas was being held at the Manatee County jail on $10,000 bond for a charge of burglary.
