A 13-year-old boy discovered a stranger in his bedroom fondling himself and punched the man in the face, according to court documents.
The incident occurred Dec. 2 at an apartment complex near the area of 40th Street and Cactus Road.
The teen told officers he went to the kitchen to make some pizza around 7 p.m. When he returned to his bedroom, he found a man lying in his bed and touching himself inappropriately.
The suspect, identified as 27-year-old Andre Marc Sutherland, was on meth at the time and entered through an unlocked sliding glass door, according to court documents.
After the punch, Sutherland and the boy got into a scuffle. The man eventually left. The teen locked himself in a bathroom and called his father and 911.
The boy’s father said he got the call from his son while at work in the West Valley.
“As soon as he said it, I kinda didn’t believe it,” said the boy’s father in an interview. “He said, ‘Oh, there was a break in and he tried to choke me’ was all he said. ‘I’m locking myself in the bathroom.’” More
Too bad this teen didn’t have some firepower to fight back with.
The boy’s father said he and his son have discussed ways in which the teen should react to emergencies while he’s away at work, “but nothing that can really prepare you for this kind of situation.”
“He certainly exceeded my expectations. I’m very proud of him,” the father said.
I’m glad this kid punched him in the face. In my opinion, he deserved a lot more than that! https://t.co/8aiFeiW8g6
