PHOENIX — Police say a home invasion suspect has been apprehended after entering two homes in Phoenix early Monday morning.

Officials say Francisco Meza-Beltran, 32, entered a home near 28th Street and Osborn Road around 4:30 a.m. where an armed resident confronted him, forcing him to flee.

A few doors down from that victim's residence, Meza-Beltran entered a home with a woman and her two children inside. Police say Meza-Beltran attempted to sexually assault the woman, but she woke up and was able to fight him off before he fled again.

Police set up a perimeter in the neighborhood and located Meza-Beltran. He is reportedly not known to the victims.

Both victims reportedly had unlocked or open doors that allowed Meza-Beltran to enter.
