Hallandale Beach Police said they arrested a man who broke into an 82-year-old woman’s home early Friday morning and sexually assaulted her.
Police said they responded to her residence at about 5 a.m., with investigators determining that a man entered the home through the laundry room window and then sexually battered the victim. He left by unlocking the front door, they said.
Detectives later identified Jermoind McDaniel, 28, “as the perpetrator who committed the burglary and sexual battery,” police said.
They took him into custody at his apartment at 313 SE 2nd Street, and back at police headquarters he gave a full confession to the crime, police said.
McDaniel was recently released from prison after serving a four-year sentence for burglary, police added.
