The juvenile suspect was arrested and taken to the juvenile booking facility.

11 p.m. — 6000 block of 39th Court E. Suspicious circumstances. While the complainant was in the shower, she reportedly heard a loud noise coming from her screened in lanai. As she exited the shower, she heard what she said she believed was a male’s voice. The complainant then slammed her bathroom door and turned on her lights. When she looked out the sliding glass door, she saw that the screen enclosure was torn and her patio furniture knocked over. The furniture was lying in front of the screen that was torn. The complainant stated she did not see anyone inside her patio. It did not appear that someone made entry into the lanai and looks like the wind may have knocked the furniture into the screen.
