JAMAICA — A Bronx man was charged with allegedly climbing into a Jamaica woman’s bedroom, hitting her on the head with a cell phone and burning a pair of sneakers on top of her gas stove last month, the Queens district attorney said.

Francisco Melendez, 21, was charged with burglary, assault, arson and harassment, according to the DA.

After Melendez allegedly placed the sneakers atop the woman’s gas stove, the shoes caught fire and the stove no longer works, the DA said.
