Woman interrupts burglary in Pasadena

PASADENA — A woman with a baby interrupted a burglary at her home Wednesday and was pushed and had her hair pulled one of the fleeing burglars, police said.
The incident occurred about 5:40 p.m. at an apartment in the 100 block of South Madison Avenue.
The woman was walking home with her baby in a stroller when she saw to burglars on the balcony of her apartment, Pasadena police Lt. Randell Taylor said.
The woman yelled out, and the men ran from the apartment toward the woman, the lieutenant said.
One of the burglars pushed the woman and pulled her hair, while the other dropped and damaged a computer they had taken from the home, Taylor said.
The woman was not injured, and the burglars are believed to have left empty-handed, he said.
Taylor added that the burglary appeared random, and the thieves likely took advantage of an unlocked door or window to enter the home.
The burglars were described as Latino men in their mid-20s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, of medium build, with short hair and clean shaven faces, Taylor said.

Suspected peeper captured in Baldwin Park

Here’s the story as written by Emma Gallegos this morning:

BALDWIN PARK – A man suspected of peering into a young girl’s window and exposing himself to her was arrested this morning after police followed a trail of footprints, cigarette butts and other evidence leading to him.

Jason Francis Orefice, 31, was booked on suspicion of attempted burglary and indecent exposure following the 5:30 a.m. incident.

The girl reported that she woke up to see the silhouette of a man outside her bedroom window in the 14100 block of Olive Street . She told her dad, who went outside and found a man performing a sex act on himself near the window. He chased the suspect away and called police, Lt. David Reynoso said.

There were marks on the window showing that someone had attempted to break into the girl’s room, Reynoso said. Police tracked the suspect’s footprints, fresh cigarette butts and a pry bar that may have been used on the window to a residence one street north in the 14100 block of Masline Street, Reynoso said. They knocked on the door and found Orefice, police said. One witness positively identified Orefice, Reynoso said.
