A 15-year-old boy has been taken into custody in connection with the robbery and sexual assault of a woman at gunpoint in Fort Worth over the weekend.

Police were looking for a male who sexually assaulted and robbed a 55-year-old woman Saturday afternoon at an apartment in the 6800 block of South Hulen Street.

The attacker used a gun to force his way into to victim’s apartment and threatened her during the robbery, then returned minutes later and sexually assaulted the woman, police said.

The suspect was detained at an apartment complex a few blocks away, police said Tuesday. The teen, whose name was not released because of his age, faces a charge of aggravated robbery.

In a tweet Tuesday, the Fort Worth Police Department said it got tips about the case from multiple states.

Detectives are analyzing evidence obtained with a search warrant and the incident remains under investigation, police said.
