When police arrived on the scene they interviewed a neighbor who claimed to have witnessed one of the suspects, 19-year-old Christian Mendoza, entering the victim's house, according to Wylie.
Mendoza, who lives in a different unit in the same duplex as the victim, was contacted by police, who developed evidence that he and a 14-year-old boy had broken into the victim's home, Wylie said. The money was not recovered.
Both teens were arrested. Mendoza was booked into the jail and the younger boy was released to the custody of his parents.
