NBC 5 News

The Fort Worth Police Department says an arrest has been made in the sexual assault of a woman in her own home in Southwest Fort Worth.

Fort Worth police said Tuesday a 15-year-old male had been arrested in connection with a break-in, robbery and sexual assault of a woman at an apartment complex in the 6800 block of South Hulen Street on Saturday afternoon.

Police released a video on social media that has since been taken down.

"This lady is, unfortunately, an innocent victim she doesn't know who this is," said Officer Buddy Calzada.

Fort Worth police say the teen forced his way into a 55-year-old woman's apartment and robbed her. Police say he then returned and sexually assault her at gunpoint, then took off in her car.

Officers later found the car in the 4700 block of Norma Street but three males managed to run away.

"It's extremely concerning to us because we don't want any victim in our city, much less anyone who's had their door kicked in and been sexually assaulted at gunpoint," said Calzada.

Investigators do not believe this case is connected to any other recent sexual assaults.
