[if gte mso 9]>normal0falsefalsefalseEN GBX-NONEX-NONEMicrosoftInternetExplorer4A teenager from Scottsdale, Arizona has been arrested for allegedly raping two women, including a neighbor who lives in his apartment building.

DNA evidence linked the 16-year-old boy to the attacks, which had split up a week on October 18 and October 24, police said.

The boy's name has not been released because he is a minor and it has not yet been determined whether he will be tried as an adult.

According to the police, the suspect entered an apartment in the Camden San Paloma apartment complex through an unlocked patio door

He is detained for assault, kidnapping and burglary, and the police think he may be connected to more crimes in the area, according to a local television station in Arizona, KPHO CBS 5.

Police were led to the suspect by a tip from the Scottsdale community, according to Sgt. Mark Clark from the Scottsdale Police Station.

The suspect's DNA was already in the police service database because he has a criminal past that also relates to crimes related to the person for whom he is currently being held.

The authorities did not provide further details about the boy's former crimes.

They said DNA testing is underway because the police collected additional samples from the suspect's house through a search warrant.

DNA samples that were in our file are already linked to both attacks.

The victims of the rape could not identify the boy in a series of suspects, but the police say there are a number of similarities between his appearance and a composite sketch of the suspect signed using the description of her first-victim attacker .

In both attacks, the attacker entered apartments on the first floor through unlocked patio doors of women living alone.

At the first attack, which took place at 11 p.m. on October 18, the attacker came naked into an apartment and raped the 49-year-old woman who lived there just finished showering.

He later fled and still wore no clothes. The second attack took place in an apartment complex across the street at around 11.30 am & # 39; on October 24.

The victim, 29, was sitting on a bench next door in a nightgown when the attacker broke in, the police said.

On Thursday, the day before the police arrested the teenager, authorities acquitted a 22-year-old man who had previously been arrested for the same crimes.

According to police, forensic evidence did not match DNA samples collected from the crime scene.

The entire community was watched while the investigation was underway, with police urging residents to lock their doors and windows and have their blinds signed.

The suspect was described as a black man about 5-foot, 7-inch long and has an athletic build.
