A 16-year-old male is accused of entering a Phoenix home and using a Taser on a pre-teen girl and an adult woman. 

Phoenix police report that on July 20, a 16-year-old male suspect entered a home near 32nd Street and Thomas Road around noon. The suspect went into a young girl's bedroom, pushed her to the ground and used a Taser on her multiple times. 

Upon hearing the girl's screams, an adult woman entered the room and began punching the suspect. The woman, who was also hit with the Taser by the suspect, still managed to chase him out of the home through the laundry room window. 

The suspect was located in the area and arrested by police. He's been charged with burglary kidnapping and aggravated assault.
