A naked illegal alien from Guatemala wearing a mask broke into a home where a 12-year-old girl was baby-sitting her neighbors' children, ages 2 and 6
Kent Town police said the children were watching television in a bedroom at around 11 p.m. Saturday when the baby sitter noticed a light go off in the living room.
A few seconds later the naked man, wearing a mask, jumped her, police said. The baby sitter was able to fight off the intruder by punching him in the face. When he ran out, she took the children to her family's upstairs apartment and her father called 911.
Officer Joe Peters responded within a minute and saw a stranger near the garage. He grabbed the suspect, who was now clothed, but the man slipped out of his jacket and took off.
The suspect, whom police identified as Rigoberto Perez, 33, fell into a stream and was arrested. Police said Perez was a homeless illegal alien from Guatemala. He was charged with burglary, assault, and unlawful imprisonment.
"She's very brave. Everyone should be proud of her," Kent Police Lt. Alex DiVernieri said of the baby sitter. "She was able to fend off her attacker and at the same time get the two kids she was responsible for to safety."
The baby sitter was treated for injuries to her neck and back.
