BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
Jefferson County deputies say a suspect is under arrest after he allegedly broke into his neighbor's house and was found hiding in a four-year-old girl's bedroom.
The victim woke up around 1 a.m. after hearing his front door open at his home on Crossbrook Lane in Pinson. He went into the living room and found his front door standing open.
The victim then went to check his four-year-old daughter's room and says he found a man hiding there. His daughter was not in the room at the time because she was sleeping in the same room as her parents.
The victim told deputies the man looked like his neighbor, Mauricio Bravo-Hernandez. After being confronted by the homeowner, Hernandez fled from the house.
"I don't know if the neighbor knew that was her bedroom or what his intent was, I can't imagine a much more disturbing thing for a parent. But you know what, he's in jail now where he needs to be," Jefferson County Chief Deputy Randy Christian said.
Deputies found Hernandez at his own home after they were called to the original scene. Hernandez is in the Jefferson County Jail charged with burglary. He being held on a $30,000 bond.
