Man tries to break into teen's bedroom

A neighborhood remains on edge after a man tried to break into the bedroom of a Chandler teenager.

Police said it's too early to know if the man wanted for a string of rapes was responsible for the attempted break-in late Saturday.

"This report will be forwarded to the detectives working the serial rapist case to see if it has anything in common," said Chandler police spokesman Sgt. Rick Griner. "At this point it's no different than any other attempted burglaries we get in the city in any one day."





Still, the incident frightened Lori and Ruben Ruiz.

They awoke to the screams of their 14-year-old daughter.

"She was sleeping in the front bedroom here and could hear some scraping," said Ruben Ruiz. "She saw someone standing there and just screamed."

Ruiz and his wife rushed to the teen's bedroom, where they noticed the window screen had been ripped.

"She decided to sit up (in bed) and he was just there," Lori Ruiz said. "Just the vision of it is horrifying for me."

The teen said the man looked chubby, had dark-skin and wore a shirt with a hood that wasn't pulled up.

When her parents showed her the sketch of the serial rapist, the teen said they looked the same.

The Ruiz family said police removed a piece of the screen for evidence and checked for fingerprints.

Griner said what happened Saturday night doesn't match the typical behavior of the serial rapist, who is believed to be responsible for attacking five teen and preteen girls either in the early morning hours or about mid-evening since June 2006. The most recent incident occurred June 8.

Also, the serial rapist's attacks have taken place in an area about a mile away from the Ruiz home, police said.

Would it be asking too much for this guy to break into someone's house and be greeted with a load of 00 buck?

Can a forensicist (sp?) lift prints from a screen?

Not reallt off of a screen, but there can be recoverable DNA in a figerprint that may be retrievable.

That is a little CSI, isn't it?

Good in theory, but virtually impossible in reality.

how do you get DNA from a fingerprint.

to extract DNA, you need a substance that was created by the bodies cells.

semen, saliva, blood etc..
