RALEIGH – A man is in jail after a security breach at the Raleigh-Durham International Airport.

Homayun Azargoon, 23, tried to access a Terminal A concourse level that was closed for the night, RDU spokeswoman Mindy Hamlin said.

Airport surveillance tape shows Azargoon breaking a glass door with a metal stand Wednesday morning. He then pushed against the glass, shattering it.

Azargoon was arrested by RDU police.

He faces several charges, including assault on a government officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest.

Azargoon was being held Wednesday evening in the Wake County Jail.
