15-year-old Hanford boy accused of attempted rape

FRESNO, Calif.

Hanford Police say the attempted rape occurred in the 800 block of S. Harris Street in Hanford. The victim reported that while she was sleeping, the suspect climbed through a window, entered her bedroom where the victim was asleep (redundant and not needed), and began to remove her clothing. She told police that she woke up and confronted the suspect -- scaring him off.

Responding officers located a subject matching the suspect description. The victim positively identified the 15-year-old male suspect and he was taken into custody.
