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.
