WARREN COUNTY, OH (FOX19) - The teen who witnesses say was naked when he tried to break into a Hamilton Township home last weekend has been charged.
A woman called 911 on May 9 claiming a 17-year-old tried to enter her Murdoch-Goshen Road home around 10:20 p.m. The caller engaged with the suspect while talking to dispatchers and is heard warning the teen “Stay away from me, you will get shot.”
The 911 caller described the suspect as "probably on something" (referencing drugs) and said he attempted hurt her by grabbing her around the neck.
Moments later, the woman screamed and told dispatchers her husband shot the teen. The shotgun round accidentally hit the woman and injured her shoulder and eye, officials say. She was taken to the hospital and is expected to recover.
Warren County Prosecutor David Fornshell says after the teen was shot in the back, he was found running around and running himself into walls. When the male homeowner went to give the suspect towels to prevent the bleeding, the homeowner found the suspect on the front porch of the house masturbating.
"When police officers arrived on scene, he was still highly sexualized because when the officer attempted to arrest him, he assaulted the officer in the groin area," Fornshell said.
Fornshell says that he believes the teen went out that night looking for a woman to have sex with.
Officers placed the teen under arrest and was transported to Bethesda North Hospital to be treated for a gunshot wound to the back. The teen is expected to recover, according to the teen's father.
Fornshell announced on Friday that the teen's charges included attempted burglary, attempted rape, assault on a police officer and public indecency.
"He just seemed a little off, like he wasn't really himself. He's been under a lot of stress lately with graduation and everything," the teen's father told FOX19 NOW on Sunday.
Fornshell says the father's narrative about the evening is inconsistent with what witnesses have told officials.
