A 27-year-old man was found in the closet of a 15-year-old girl in Glendale.

Glendale Police report that on February 14 they were called to a home near 75th Avenue and Bethany Home Road by a woman who found a man in the closet of her boyfriend’s teenage daughter. 

Police say the victim and 27-year-old Jacob Keith Wisdom met on a phone application called 'whisper.' Their conversations soon became sexual in nature, and the victim invited the man, whom she believed was under 18-years-old, to her home. 

Wisdom came to the home and entered the girl's room through the bedroom window. There he allegedly began to participate in sexual conduct with the girl.

The woman in the home, who is the girlfriend of the teen's father, was outside when she noticed the screen to the girl's bedroom was missing. As she took a closer look, she reportedly saw a "man's feet hanging off the edge of the bed."

The woman went back to the house and knocked on the door. At first, the girl denied there was anyone in her room, but the woman located Wisdom in the closet.

Wisdom came out of the closet and waited for police to arrive. In talking with police, he allegedly admitted to entering the home and touching the victim.

Wisdom has been charged with sexual conduct with a minor.
