A North Naples man accused of breaking into a neighbor’s apartment last month was arrested Wednesday.
The victim told Collier County detectives she left her apartment around 8:30 a.m. in early March to walk her dog, leaving the door unlocked. Her boyfriend, who was still asleep in the bedroom, said a man walked into the apartment, came halfway into the bedroom, nodded, smiled and turned around and left.
The boyfriend got up to chase after him, but the man was nowhere to be found, according to an arrest report. Days after the break-in, the couple said they saw the suspect going into another apartment in their building and worked with the property manager to get his information.
An arrest report said the man, Carlos Roberto Carranza-Ramos, 42, had a history of similar incidents.
On Wednesday, deputies interviewed Carranza-Ramos, who told them he saw the woman leave her apartment and went inside because he was lonely and wished to have sex with her roommate. He told them that both tenants were “very pretty,” although he noted that no one had ever invited him over.
Carranza-Ramos, who lives in the same building as the victim on the 15900 block of Arbor View Boulevard, faces a charge of burglary of an occupied dwelling.
