William Kirk Alexander, 42, of Roseville, has been charged with felony burglary, felony terroristic threats and felony domestic assault for an incident involving an Oakdale woman that occurred on on February 29, 2012.
Acccording to the complaint, an Oakdale woman left her home on February 28, 2012 to go out with a male friend.
