A male juvenile has turned himself in after Florida police released video showing a suspect who reportedly left obscene messages on a 17-year-old girl’s window.
Accompanied by his parents, WESH reported the suspected prowler turned himself in early Tuesday. A teen girl claimed she heard squeaking outside her window the night of July 7 and awoke the next day to find messages written on her window.
The first half of the message reportedly read, “I won’t stop stalking you,” while the second half provided a vulgar description of the girl’s body. Police also located an ear print on the window, according to the Orlando Sentinel.
In light of the ordeal, officers reportedly installed surveillance cameras outside the girl’s home. The newspaper reported that it wasn’t even a week later when the suspect was spotted stalking outside the Florida home.
The teen suspect was charged with loitering and prowling and criminal trespassing. His name isn’t being revealed as there’s no indication at this point in time that he’s being charged as an adult.
The suspect’s family said they became aware of the incident on Monday after police released images of the suspect to the media.
