A juvenile was officially charged in a sexual assault and burglary case in East Hartford that happened earlier this month.

Police said a warrant was signed and served at Juvenile Court to the unidentified suspect.

They said the incident happened Sept. 19 on Collimore Road.

Neighbors said they can rest assured now that police have tracked down a suspect.

"It's disturbing that it's a single woman. How did this guy figure out she's a single woman, or that she had a gun," said Roy Farnham.

The victim reported that the home was burglarized and the victim had been sexually assaulted.

The suspect was apprehended later for unrelated crimes, police said. A stolen firearm was also recovered.

Police said the suspect was charged with first-degree criminal attempted murder, first-degree sexual assault, home invasion, first-degree assault, first-degree unlawful restraint, theft of a firearm and sixth-degree larceny.

The suspect is being held at Hartford Juvenile Detention.
